HEAR THIS: The Landing
The self described ‘space-pop’ of Brooklyn based music-maker, The Landing, blends delicate synths, gentle percussion and bass and a lovely haunting falsetto to create organic, melodic, contemplative songs.
In his debut EP, We Are, The Landing journeys through the pressing questions of 21st century live, starting with the elusive “Who am I?” in title track “We Are”. He then moves onto the lighter, charming “Anxieties”, the oddly up-and-down upbeat melody of “Pale Blue” and the calming, piano led haze of “Strange Charm” that is, well, strangely charming. The record comes to a close with “Write It Down”, lulling and uplifting at the same time and interwoven with guitar plucking and repeated vocals. The unique and touchingly beautiful music of this solo artist is a sound to drift away to as you ponder the mysteries of life.
