Product Description

Arovane & Hior Chronik return to A Strangely Isolated Place with their second album as a duo, following 2015’s ‘In-between‘.

Into my own‘ finds Arovane and Hior experimenting with distinctive feelings, styles and moments throughout the twelve tracks, creating an album full of twists and turns. Featuring a similar ethereal ambience to In-between, delicate instruments, field recordings and more melodic electronic influences are now apparent, forming a tangible storyline, as the duo leave you standing on the edge of a journey unknown, lost and lonesome, a soundtrack to anticipated escapism.

Conjuring many moments of discovery as you step foot into this unknown world, the appreciation of finer details and textures slowly become apparent. You wander apprehensively across fresh autumn leaves, crisp from the morning’s fog amidst a glowing soft light as day turns to night.

Balancing organic, analog tones and more metallic, experimental approaches, the duo have once again found a harmonious balance of ambient, instrumental and electronic sounds that transports you into a new world; a familiar yet unexplored territory that holds your hand, as you come into your own.

One of my wishes is that those dark trees,
So old and firm they scarcely show the breeze,
Were not, as ’twere, the merest mask of gloom,
But stretched away unto the edge of doom.
Robert Frost (“Into My Own” – 1915)

So lovely, just chiming, very simply in the dark of the night…
Mary Anne Hobbs – BBC Radio6
