Port Royal – Where Are You Now


another album of the year…. 
Τhey still compose in full color depth! If you always are streaming for that special second at the end of a long song’s journey, an intimate bigbang of a feeling…dive into the hand that reaches out of the black pitch atmosphere, lighting your way into whatever noise your searching through the myst abyss….of life.

Ακόμη γράφουν πολύχρωμα και τονωτικά. Για σένα που έχεις την υπομονή να ακούσεις το ‪#‎bigbang‬
μέσα σου για τα τελευταία δευτερόλεπτα ενός τραγουδιου. Από την σχισμή
του ολόμαυρου διαστήματος , λάμπει δειλα η ψυχή στα ακροδάχτυλα,
φεγγίζοντας απαλά τον δρόμο … για ότι ψάχνει τον θόρυβο στο
ησυχαστηριον “το κενο”. Στην κατηγορια: ‪#‎αισθαντικά‬

Where Are You Now is the fourth proper album from Italian widescreen
dancegaze trio port-royal. It’s been nearly six years since their
previous full length Dying in Time (n5MD) and not counting compilation
appearances, remix and rarities anthology 2011s 2000-2010: The Golden
Age Of Consumerism (n5MD) and the Diamat album that port-royal architect
Attilio Bruzzone orchestrated in 2013 port-royal has appeared somehow
eerily silent. We now know that they’ve been very hard at work. That old
adage that good things come to those who wait has never been more true.
Where Are You Now spans the six year gap effortlessly with the band’s
familiar and reoccurring themes ever looming while adding newer
complimentary components to their soaring tapestries. Such elements are
present in the pop shimmer of tracks like “Death of a Manifesto” and
“Alma M.” to the more muscular almost industrialized beat mangling
included in select sections of “Karl Marx Song” and “Theodor W.
Adorno”. To those that may be worried at such additions, they, in
port-royal’s hands, are now inseparable components with the band’s
already signature blend of post-rock, dream-pop and dance music.
