yndi halda 'A Sun Coloured Shaker' 12"
yndi halda release their brand new EP, A Sun-Coloured Shaker through Big Scary Monsters on 16th February. Marking both a thematic accompaniment and a follow-up to their acclaimed 2016 full-length Under Summer, the new EP explores new musical and lyrical ideas and represents a band continuing to progress their own developing and maturing songwriting. Where yndi halda have previously worn the mantles of “instrumental” and “post-rock” music - especially with their 2006 debut Enjoy Eternal Bliss - their recent movements have occupied considerably broader territories. The closely-crafted vocal harmonies and new musicalities of Under Summer have been continued in A Sun-Coloured Shaker, but their form is now embedded into a symbiotic world in which a love of true songwriting, meticulous post-classical arrangement, contemporary indie, choral music, and transcendent longform structure coexist. The band themselves reference inspirations as unexpected as Alice Coltrane, Akira Rabelais and Lonnie Liston Smith, whose influences subtly intertwine with more immediate comparison points.
