Product Description

Mark Pritchard unveils a brand new eight-track collection, The Four Worlds. Further exploring the sonic worlds first encountered on 2016’s opus Under The Sun and once again, an extended collaboration with acclaimed visual artist Jonathan Zawada.

Listening through in full, we gather The Four Worlds are split across the different terrains of sound mapped out by Mark, from the hushed alien landscape of Parkstone Melody II, its deserted land only punctured by the piano keys that fall through the mist throughout. Each world slowly begins to reveal itself as a sort of modern classical meditation, with moments of clarity drifting in and out, such as the cold shiver, eyes wide glare of Come Let Us which features an incredibly vivid Gregory Whitehead vocal.  

Yet eventually these worlds are revealed as places where the inhabitants are looking out and not inward, this is most evident on the records most cherished piece which features The Space Lady omitting a softy spoken S.O.S. signal, a plea for help that we imagine many will reach out to embrace time and time again.
