Never Sol (Czech Republic)
“The Prague-based creative’s second album “Chamaleo” leaves an impression with its sophisticated, patient construction and sonic suggestion of spaciousness, sadness and isolation.”
A LONELY GHOST BURNING
Never Sol’s second studio recording “Chamaleo” consists of eleven fragile nocturnal tracks. It is grounded in the sounds of analog synthesizers, which are delivered through melancholic harmonies. This release carries you away to a surrealistic landscapes created by labyrinthine layers of vocals and synths. At times, her songs veer into David Lynch territory: full-bodied, thick and eerie. Occasionally, they are sparse and open – just her voice and a few carefully placed instrumental ornamentations. Darkly serene and modest, Never Sol’s music is like a tender game of contrasts designed for late-night dreamers.
