With a superb melodic proficiency — and moderate, cohesive harmonies —, the musical tonalities fluctuates above the groundbreaking devices of its flexible anatomy. The serene atmospheres conceived by the generally consistent musical standards of the group definitely collaborates to make their graciously resonating sonorous modulations a marvelous sensitive experience, whose protuberating calmness is occasionally disrupted by exceedingly audacious and diluted dispersive reverberations, that always converge to an ocean of abundant and delightful serenity.
Of course, don't get me wrong; sometimes, the music gets ostensibly predictable, like I've pointed out some lines above. Nevertheless, this fact
does not diminish the graceful epic beauty of the magnificent grandiloquent style delivered by the group. The sound has a powerful and genuine virtuosity — that is felt primarily by the gentle grasp of the harmonies' discreet tonalities —, that slowly articulates the warm existential disintegration of its gracefully melodic features, over the benevolent cosmogony of a dense , placid and diffusive musical nature.
Generally speaking, the eponymous debut album of Vaudlow is a very graceful and diligent work of art, despite the fact that the sound resents itself of some stylistic sonorous limitations. Revealing a consistent and cohesive musical group, whose talents are flexible enough to dilapidate — initially in a moderate and restricted context — a new creative conjuncture to the genre, Vaudlow doesn't disappoint.
With their beautiful harmonies, salutary sensibility and a strict adherence to the general guidelines of post rock, this debut album certainly has enough qualities to be appreciated by enthusiastic audiences. While you cannot expect anything too extraordinary to come out of it, undoubtedly you will find abundant, formidable, deeply humane beauty, in each note played, in all these amazing tracks. Vaudlow will amuse you with remarkable moments of majestic and everlasting serenity.
