Imploded View is the moniker of Longford based beatmaker Jerome McCormick. It is a new side project from the former Kildare native who takes a breather from his work as Garden Hall to pursue a more ‘experimental’ approach.
An Exploded Few is very much an after hours record which over 6-tracks is an exciting blend of experimental electronic music. It whisks you on a vast expansive journey through effervescent and ambient soundscapes arrived at via a whole manner of retro synths and 1/4 inch Reel-to-Reel tape machine.
It’s super chilled all the way through from the crunchy beats and ambiance of ‘First One Home’ to the synthy and reel-to-reel wobbles of ‘Scuba Diving’, it never fails to set the mood. Meanwhile the spectacular trio of ‘Through Those Oceans’, ‘Dark Is The Light’ and ‘Across The Snow’ wouldn’t be out-of-place in the company of Röyksopp‘s introverted latest album, Senior.
An Exploded View is out now via not-for-profit net label Fwonk*for free here.
