Holobeams and Broken Machines looks to create uplifting and beautiful electronic music. Influenced from bands like Boards of Canada, Washed Out, Orbital, M83. The sound has some synth nostalgia, retro vibe going on but more emphasis is on trying to create something new rather than rehashing the past.

SynthGlasgow.com ~ Released as a free download via Bandcamp, the five track, self-titled ‘Holobeams and Broken Machines EP’ is a stunning debut which creates an incredible atmosphere of soaring synths and epic soundscapes. Influences can be immediately cited amongst the Trip Hop heavyweights - opening track ‘Bocume’ could easily have featured on [ Massive Attack’s ] ‘Blue Lines’ or ‘Mezzanine’, but make no mistake, Iain Foxwell’s work is completely unique. With delicate intricacy, each track forms a standalone identity which is but a small part of the bigger picture. Listen to the EP as a whole and you’ll soon find that like a great piece of art, what you take from it depends on how deep you’re willing to look…

Bad-fotogoraphy.co.uk ~ Beautiful synthwork, full of warmth and moisture, textured sounds, and a floaty almost magical soundscape"

Localsuicide.com ~ Glasgow based producer Iain Foxwell is Holobeams & Broken Machines and is definitely worth your attention. A stunning debut, easy to listen to and completely trippy. Synth galaxy sounds, a warm feeling and beautiful melodies. If you like Boards of Canada, Washed Out and M83, you will certainly like this.

Phoenixandfireworks.com ~ I am instantly reminded of [ starscapes ] and [ galaxies ].

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
