The Ordeal Cycle
After a first dancefloor-oriented release, Vilamar open their second editorial line dedicated to more narrative explorations with this sonorous 6-track mini album, written and composed in 2019 by Hiroma Keo. Formal yet experimental, each track plays with textural contrasts, gossamer lightness brushing up against uncompromising density. The result is a thing of austere beauty: from the cinematic opener to the climactic rush of the finale you will find shimmering arpeggios, industrial polyrhythms and, at one point, even an unabashedly 80s synth lead. Made in Lisbon, but with its gaze fixed firmly beyond the horizon.
