Eluvium
Similes
(Temporary Residence)
Releasing: 23 February


In the two years since Eluvium’s last album, Matthew Cooper has learned how to add vocals to his ambient tracks, and not in an “incomprehensible mumbling and cooing” way either. This is bona fide singing with lyrics and everything. It’s definitely a different listening experience—it’s harder to lose yourself in the music when there’s someone else in the aural room.


SONG LIST
01 Leaves Eclipse the Light
02 The Motion Makes Me Last
03 In Culmination
04 Weird Creatures
05 Nightmare 5
