The sound is calm and slow, and these characteristics are a mainstay throughout the whole album, although they are expressively competent in more aggressive and abrasive musical passages. But the strongest element of their music is a powerful objectivity, that really digresses from a very methodic and carefully detailed sonorous elaboration, that extracts from exceedingly meticulous guitar lines the arbitrary power of an extremely surreal and intense musicality. In fact, The White Flies reveals itself to be a very splendid work, that has on the intricacy of a permanently detailed calmness the splendid ingredients for a profoundly developed singular style.
Of course, you have to be an ardent enthusiast of this genre of music, to have an affinity with their sound, otherwise chances are high that you will become extremely bored. But if you like slow motion mosaic impressionistic tunes in superbly dense reverberating musical tonalities, The White Flies is an album that becomes almost a religious obligation to hear! A fantastic album indeed. And what can be pointed out as incredibly impressive on this record is the fact that, despite, the predominantly slow harmonies, you never feel yourself encircled by a singular trace of monotony whatsoever. The album is splendidly interesting, expressively wonderful, quite charming, delicate and full of marvelous melodies.
Without a doubt, The White Flies is an amazing album. Certainly, a golden pearl for each and every enthusiast of stoner rock. It’s almost a crime not to listen the astoundingly singular conjunction of qualities that this formidable record proved itself to be!
