Following the digital only release of ‘Snakes In The Grass‘ EP last year, Melbourne-based imprint Daisart present the first solo release from Nico Callaghan’s alternative musical project Haji K. in the form of a four-track EP of ambient-leaning music named ‘Black Against An Orange Line‘.
Our premiere ‘Antoinette & A Single Tear Climbing Up A Wall‘ veers towards both freedom and imprisonment, with the stuttering refrains playing out as if a frozen loop on a half-broken CDJ, loosely connected still to a speaker hosted in some hidden cavity in the room.
Over the course of the 6 minute composition this frozen movement slowly begins to thaw as more harmonic layers fall through. Resulting in a gentle rhythm and melodic starlight sifting through to the listener’s ears.
‘Black Against an Orange Line’ is out now on Daisart. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
