Blueprints

by Celluloid

Epic, mournful, nervous, brooding, arty and exciting, where the ravaged becomes ravishing. Shades of Peter Gabriel with the experimental fringes of Joy Division provides a bleak but fascinating world, laced with tinkling highs and disconcerting quietness.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Celluloid is one of those few bands who seem to have discovered that hallowed ground where accessible and experimental music co-exist.
Eminently listenable, killer hooks and post-rock overtones are embedded into unsettling electronica soundscapes and at the heart of it all are deeply personal human songs full of pain and wonder.

The Production team of Matthew Devenish and Ian Jenkins arise to release a work of introspection and dark hues founded on extraordinary writing and masterful engineering.

Brave and mind-altering the duo have already been aired on BBC 6 Music, Radio 3's Late Junction and regional BBC Radio, and continue garnering attention for such exploratory material.

Celluloid (This Is A Void) is a spiteful little pop song, sparkling in its own drool. Think Aztec Camera, with tourniquets applied.

Blink where clever electronica and edgy drums provide the backbone of the song, but it's the words that leap out and hit you like a sledgehammer, “It'’s Saturday, lets party, try and mingle/The room is full but still you feel alone”

Standout track: Fear of Flying for its Banshees' step-up-to-the-plate guitar and illustrative madness on the edge.

The sorrowful ‘Falling Star is one of the weirder entries and the more enjoyable for it, minimalist and caring.

Gridlock bleeps and seethes, with bass frisking and vocals dominating the squashier backing, then doing an about face and becoming chillier, with other twists and turns taking it into doleful territory, becoming increasingly seductive and worrying and is a great thing.

A collision of visions - but one that has been slowed down before impact.
That in essence, is the Celluloid sound - you know you're about to be torn apart but you can't help thinking how beautiful those shards of glass are before they strike.
