Phoenix ambient post rockers STILL MOTIONS share beautiful, hypnotic new album “synthesis”

1 min read

syn · the · sis by Phoenix based instrumental epic post rockers STILL MOTIONS is the follow up to their 2020 debut Mirrors, and is both a continuation and an evolution of the loud, energetic style that has caused fans of the genre to stand up and take notice.

The band honors the trademark reverb-drenched guitars and delicate melodies that helped post-rock gain fans across the globe, but they also understand the potential pitfalls of the genre, which is demonstrated by songwriting that is consistently propulsive, always hurtling toward a destination rather than lingering on individual ideas.

The meandering, contemplative style of “synthesis” is introspective, self-assured and wonderful. It’s a meticulously crafted, admirably complex, and despite its well explored ‘loud and calm’ dynamics, thrilling in their unpredictability. Have a listen below.

STILL MOTIONS delivers music that moves and grows, savvily avoiding the stereotypes that are sometimes used to describe this style of music when it’s not executed adventurously.

“synthesis” is out today via Indianapolis-based Post. Recordings.
