about

Following a self-released cassette of a live performance at The Island and the luscious soundscapes of 2014's 'Jupiter' album for Zamzamrec, Aonghus Reidy brings the modular magic of his Ocean Floor project to Aphelion Editions with this suite of four stunning compositions that combine slow-evolving modular synth textures and sequences with simple melodic and counter-melodic figures that swell and collide with an aching melancholic beauty.

'Four Shadows' is a perfect late-night contemplative soundtrack full of mystery and intrigue.

"Beatless and beatific, the sustained, droning chords of ‘Airglow’ suggest 70s Berlin School electronica and 80s new age in equal measure... If you have the chance to see Ocean Floor play a church organ set, do so; Four Shadows, meanwhile, is a fine if brief showcase for his prodigious talent."
NOEL GARDNER, THE QUIETUS, Noel's Foul House: New Weird Britain In Review

"A treat of heat-hazed harmoniums from Bristol-based Aonghus Reidy that’s woozy with a Popol Vuh of elsewheres and melodic saturations.

...kinders a waltz of lightly pinned chimes, a playful luminescence that motion-snatches at the silky emeralds of the cover art, delivers a medicating angel to curl into, dissipate away on."
