Title track 'Last Lights From Betelgeuse' is a rich sonic tapestry that embodies what 19:26 is all about. Inspired by a fading star, once the brightest in Orion's constellation, 19:26 takes listeners on a beautiful journey centred around a poignant melody. Let yourself be hypnotised, as your mind drifts to reflect on cherished memories of the past and the wonderment of future possibilities on a dance-floor with the freedom to create special moments in time .. before the night sky gives way to day.
'Lost Smiles' reaches deeper into 19:26's artistic mind, setting a captivating groove from the start. Rasping reverberating keys add a sense of drama for what's to come. The hypnotic theme takes you through a range of emotions, from melancholy to euphoric before breaking down as the air fills with tension ─ ready to lift you to a peak.
Closing out the EP 'Sleep Disorder' showcases 19:26's obsessive attention to the aesthetics of each single sound. Here 19:26 masterfully uses layers and sonic embellishments to create a captivating composition that rises and flows with electrical energy. Clever beats underpin and propel the groove, while sonic swirls temporarily disorientate. Music of the highest order.
This EP is just the first chapter in 19:26's story. A welcome introduction to his undoubted talents, and a prelude of things to come.
