Mésange is a collaboration between violinist Agathe Max (Kuro) and guitarist Luke Mawdsley (Cavalier Song). Their music is possessed and steered by a solemn power that embraces the elements and careers through dense electric skies; exposing signs that flutter and flare in dark elegance. Respective strings correspond and meander across ancient fields, while layered voices evoke serene pools of tropic sound, soon to be engulfed by inescapable tides of noise. Unfettered, yet critical, Mésange invites the listener to explore a downy and magnetic earth-scape, teetering between lightning and thunderclap. The tracks unfold like magic spells, each evoking chimes of hope, despair, freedom and oblivion.
A horrifically bleak album that I finally got around to listening to. Mesmerisingly dark and sludgy, and a distant cut above the usual stoner tripe that floods bandcamp. Truely a monumental album with some of the most deliciously tortured guitar licks I've ever heard. A dark, brooding psychedelic masterpiece. impressivelad
