Dreams of Others EP (2017)

To step into someone’s dreamscape is to step into their intimate world, a place one should enter by invitation only. And it is exactly that which creates the appeal, it piques our interest and draws us into Torkar’s corridor of mystery, stepping through the gateway he just opened for us (Passage). The barely audible breath of the dreamer (I Dreams of Others) voices a sharp, repetitive warning cautioning us against the unknown – and it must be ignored if we are to continue down the rabbit-hole, beyond the ominous deed (Impersonal Again), all the way into the depths of the club underground, where the tightening of the jaws and the grinding of the teeth (Bruxism) segues into the surprisingly supple but slow minimal sounds. The old-school, yet original synth sounds lure us into the vaulted corridor, conjuring up a neon reflection of the fantastic film noir (Rib Vaulting). We rise up from this deep swamp, following a persistent, growing rhythm, leading us forward in the hopes that this dark, visceral journey will ultimately lead us back into the light.
