On Rotation: ODONIAN DRIFTS - Volcanic Lavender
Delving into ‘Volcanic Lavender’ is bound to be one of the quirkiest and most original sonic journeys you’ll ever take on. You see, the record is super evocative, anthemic and cinematic, building a fictional universe that feels dark and twisted, yet enlightening and hopeful. Penned by Nottingham-based creative Odonian Drifts, the record anticipates the project’s debut album ‘Earwitness on Trial’, expected for the end of October.
Speaking about the idea behind the record, Odonian Drifts explain its ties with the “reflections on the renascent pop-cultural interest in philosophical pessimism over the past decade, exemplified by season 1 of ‘True Detective’ and the alarmism of U.S. right-wing commentator Glenn Beck — who declared a liberal plot to spread ideas of nihilism and progressive eugenics among the masses.”
It is on such heavy themes that Odonian Drifts builds his own nuanced and complex lyricism, something that perhaps won’t be for everyone, but that is bound to characterize the project as a white wolf, a bright and shiny star in a universe of boring and flat artistic propositions. Boasting a healthy amount of dooming soundscapes and creepy textures, ‘Volcanic Lavender’ is a mesmerising, psychedelic experience - once you’ll want to be a part of.
