about

Following on from 2010's The Lights Go Out, Invisible Elephant returns with Anomie or Swimming in a Black Sea, an album of quiet heartbreak, searing dissolution and, ultimately, redemption.

Drawing influences from shoegaze, post-rock, dream pop, folk and ambient drone, the result is something that both tests and indulges the senses. AoSiaBS uses an eclectic mix of instruments, gadgets and effects to create a multi-dimensional experience. In amongst the swirl of reverb, soft but sombre drones and light hearted pop is a vast array of sounds that effect a continual shift in focus and perspective, re-creating through music the sudden disproportionate size, shape and importance everything in the world takes on in the aftermath of heartbreak.
