Emerging as the first track on the album Somewhere Becoming Rain, Stainless Fields release their instrumental and soundful single Backs of Houses.
The song is a fusion of electronica and avant-garde music that alters the status quo of regular instruments in favour of an experimentation within robotic and spatial sound ranges as if depicting a future android civilization. In this imaginary scenario, Backs of Houses could be the perfect soundtrack for a Blade Runner-like movie or any science fiction film under the same theme.
Relying on an evocative and wide soundscape, the song is a sensorial experience where music gives way to a well-assembled noise-oriented style that strikes for its outstretched sound textures. Definitely ingenious if you think back to their experimental peers.
The entire album exposes innovative sound patterns, so do start with Backs of Houses and then go through all their other tracks. It’ll be noisily worth it!
