And So I Watch You from Afar – Jettison
And So I Watch You from Afar come back with Jettison
A surprising concept album, with sci-fi and cinematic hues.
The Belfast-based band offers an ambitious work, a 40-minute sonic exploration, accompanied by a visual performance by Sam Wiehl in a live venue.
Nothing in our repertoire comes close to the ambition of this latest project—the multimedia piece Jettison. The album is a memorable experience that transports the listener away from the tumultuous times and into a blissful musical utopia.And So I Watch You from Afar
A journey into memory, narrated by the voices of Emma Ruth Rundle and Neil Fellon. The strings of Arco String Quartet add drama, pathos, and moments of classical music.
OnceI Dive pt I
And maybe many times before that, we talked just like this
Trying to remember how it was
And I’ve grown so tired of it
All those ideas just abandoned
The creaking iron eaten away by the salt
Lazy wreckages lying empty
Still pointing their course, paused by a great retreat
No use. No destination
Waiting, just like we did
And the warm air smelt of thunder again
And I was happy
I’ve missed you
All this impeccably outlines the postrock, mathrock, art rock, and progressive compositions typical of the Irish band, which sometimes remind us of the masters Explosion in The Sky and Tortoise, precursors of the genre.
A musical journey not to be missed. An elegant and particular sound experience to be listened to, with attention and all in one breath, to appreciate even more the mood of the entire work.
I missed youAnd So I Watch You from Afar – Jettison
I was in the park, and thе park was noisy and green
I laid besides someonе, I can’t remember who
But we were in love, and life was exciting and new
And the warm air smelt of thunder, and I was happy
I’ve been here before?And So I Watch You from Afar – Jettison
