The music of the group is characterized by silence in between the notes, although the harmonies are splendidly vigorous, and the general sound departs from a world where intangible meanings are more relevant than the general redemption of their seemingly unrelated sonorous persona. Despite an apparent lack of vivaciousness, their style is profoundly monumental. There is a great scale cohesion of sonorous values that, although is somewhat common in the genre, it is not frequently found presented in the way From Mountains shapes their music, which is full of serene, but formidably dilapidated creative soundscapes, regulated by the confluence of a perfectly devised equilibrium, upon which they developed their art.
At first, you may not be too much impressed by them, but I guarantee that, after only a few minutes, you will become enchanted. Like a sensible cloud of ethereal emancipation, impregnated in a harmonious ether of ambivalent beauty, From Mountains delivers a stream of surreal sonorous elasticity, overwhelmingly shaped in a dream-like state, that takes the listener to a marvelous journey through the universe that is lost inside the blank spaces of one’s soul, opening possibilities of marvelous discoveries, upon which the music becomes the vehicle for this wonderful paradise.
My final evaluation, undoubtedly, is related to the fact that From Mountains eponymous debut album is a marvelous work of art. Concise, meaningful, beautiful, poetic and incredibly delightful, this great record has the power to exert a profound and sincere impact on its audience, by delivering thirty minutes of amazingly created music, in a way you haven’t experienced before in your life.
