Balmorhea – “Pyrakantha”

Balmorhea - StrangerBalmorhea has been quietly blowing minds since its 2006 beginning. The instrumental sextet just released a new single, “Pyrakantha,” from their upcoming fifth album, Stranger.

“Pyrakantha” opens with a quiet, expansive landscape of plucked guitars. The starry night of distant notes is washed over by the shooting stars of soft synths as the song begins to shift. The perfectly controlled drums kick in and the clean electric guitars switch to light funk riffs, dancing over subtle melodies.

Before you know it, six minutes have passed, and the song is over. But for those six minutes, everything stops but Balmorhea.

Stranger is out October 2 via Western Vinyl.
