The Metallic Cranes is an Irish producer with a vivid imagination and penchant for slow-tempo house with a retro-futuristic slant.
‘Animated Landscape with Cranes’ is the producer’s debut single, and it is a doozy. Written based on an imaginary music video, where a boy is sitting in the back of a car on a long drive across an ocean causeway with cranes flying overhead, and watching the car drive by. Using the sound of cranes, wind, and granular synthesis to create the world the song lives in, they have created something memorable.
‘Animated Landscape with Cranes’ is a fascinatingly imaginative and richly developed electronic excursion; a hypnotic, slick and cinematic vision of downtempo house. It is propelled forward on a wave of soft beats, kicks, twinkly neon-synths and seductive grooves as it meanders along, all in its own time, while a robotic voice whispers in the wind and nocturnal air. A magnificent track masterfully pieced together from start to finish, colourfully creating an incredible sense of wonderment and bringing you under its hypnotic spell from the off.
