Last week, and following two 12” single releases, Glasgow’s AMOR unleashed their wonderful and jubilant debut album, Sinking Into A Miracle, through Night School Records. A stellar collaborative disco project, AMOR is made up of multi-instrumentalist and improviser Richard Youngs, Turner nominated artist Luke Fowler, drummer Paul Thomson (Franz Ferdinand) and Norwegian composer and double-bassist Michael Francis Duch (LEMUR).
The album “retains the elastic grooves of Paradise and Higher Moment, the group’s previous single releases, but relinquishes the classic Philadelphia International tinged sound in favour of more looser rhythmic patterns”, describes the press release. “There are new depths to the compositions; a more free-flowing approach to percussion and deft experiments in hybridity, making for a full and rounded, emotionally tinged record.”
‘Glimpses Across Thunder’ serves as a marvellous taste from Sinking Into A Miracle. Take a listen now.
