An original member of seminal Birmingham experimentalists Final (alongside Justin Broadrick (Godflesh, Jesu) and Nic Bullen (Napalm Death, Scorn), Andy Swan's new project, IROHA, mixes layers of textured guitar and basslines with heartbreaking melodies and brutally slow beats to produce songs of melancholic beauty. For their first release IROHA team up with the very talented drone/ shoegaze/ ambient artist FRAGMENT from france to create a stunning 6 song sound collaboration. The songwriting is excellent. melody and melancholy start to emerge from behind the concrete foundations and work their way to a very emotional climax. 6 songs (2 from iroha, 2 from fragment, one collaboration track and one remix) in 45 minutes with perfectly fitting beautiful vocals and a dignified feeling for good melodies. Enjoy!
