Nathaniel Shannon And the Vanishing Twin are a band from Brooklyn, New York that plays a mixture of experimental and dark ambient and this is a review of their 2016 album "Trespass" which was released by Aqualamb.
Acoustic guitars and ambient style synths start off the album along with some psychedelic elements and clean singing which also gives the recording more of a neo folk feeling and you can also hear a little bit of electric guitar distortion at times and saxophones are also added into certain sections of the recording.
Drones can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while later tracks introduce sludge guitars onto the album and there is also a brief use of distorted guitar leads and the music also gets very avant garde and experimental at times and as the album progresses programmed drum beats can be heard in some of the songs and a great amount of diversity can also heard throughout all of the tracks.
Nathaniel Shannon And the Vanishing Twin plays a musical style that takes neo-folk, dark ambient and experimental and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Nathaniel Shannon And The Vanishing Twin are a very great sounding mixture of neo-folk, dark ambient and experimental and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "One Sixty Second Street" "Lost Hills" "Tombs' and "Never Drink Dead Blood". 8 out of 10.
