ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ablaze: radiant with light or emotion.

"Autumn's Grey Solace have rebuilt the shimmering craft of ethereal/shoegazer rock and have equipped it with their own essentials. Erin Welton's luminous vocals are untethered and airy, but her tenderness keeps her real, while Scott Ferrell's guitar envelops and cushions her in a fabric of smoothly shifting color and texture." - Gothic Beauty

The flame of inspiration continues to burn brightly on Ablaze, the fifth album (in six years) from ethereal shoegaze artists Autumn's Grey Solace. Ablaze contains eleven tracks of passionately created dreampop gems. Erin Welton's crystal clear vocal melodies soar into the heavens while Scott Ferrell's lush backdrop of guitars and other stringed instruments are richly orchestrated, with great attention paid to clarity and detail. The music is alive with blazing, echoing guitar chords, sun-kissed vocal harmonies, and a blistering rhythm section. Ablaze is a warm, glowing version of shoegaze, and celebrates the beauty and romanticism of the genre.


"Scott Ferrell's gorgeous treated guitars, Welton's honey voice, and a Lush-ious late-night, glide through wintry evergreens ears -- like the later Cocteaus circa Heaven and Las Vegas or Milk & Kisses. Love it." - The Big Takeover

A review from Music TAP:
Projekt Records have been a developmental home to several, eternally memorable bands. Those that immediately come to mind are Love Spirals Downwards (now known as Lovespirals), Black Tape for a Blue Girl, Thanatos, and Lycia. All have a unique sound of their own, veering into different territories. With their 5th album, Ablaze, Autumn’s Grey Solace joins their lofty ranks.
Autumn’s Grey Solace has created a stunning shoe-gazer classic with their latest album. Ablaze is filled to the brim with gorgeous, moody music that is a soundtrack to a summer night’s walk through meadows of rising fireflies. Simply, Ablaze is as equally a timeless album in the shoegazer genre as you can get, sidling up to the ones already there.

Eschewing keyboards and synthesizers, their usage of traditional instruments is the backbone of their sound. Creating an incredibly lush, ethereal shoegaze waterfall of sound, a sure-grip soundtrack to the angelic voice of Erin Welton (reminiscent of Harriet Wheeler from The Sundays), Scott Ferrell has produced an essential and enduring album that is mentionable in the same breath as other notable shoegazer classics.

From the perfect “Fluttermoth” (which should be first single off the album), to the OMD-like music of “Eternal Light,” to the wistful “Imaginary Grey,” and the delightful “Sea of Honesty,” Ablaze will mesmerize you completely, just as Love Spirals Downward did in the ‘90s.

Ablaze is the kind of work that you remember decades later, when all the other music has set like the sun, dissipating into nightfall. Adorned with a flawless cover, indicative of the bright music of the duo that forms Autumn’s Grey Solace, Ablaze is rapturous from beginning to end.

Fans of the shoegazer genre have no reason to vacillate on this release. Consider it essential for it surely is. Rating: 4.5 out of 5 -Matt Rowe

Soothing Gothic Shoegaze
Autumn's Grey Solace is an extremely brilliant band one rarely sees these days. Erin Welton's ethereal vocals over Scott Felton's musical arrangements are sure to make a fan out of anyone. My favorite songs, because you can't just have one favorite Autumn's Grey Solace song, are Tracks 1 (Endlessly) through 5 (Tusk). Brilliant Band, worth the listen! :)

Love this!
This was the first album I got from this band... but I will not be the last one. "Endlessly", probably never get bored with this song.
