Caught by the River

Fugitive Light And Themes Of Consolation

12th June 2020

Today, Andrew Wasylyk announces Fugitive Light And Themes Of Consolation — the third in a trio of records which unearth and reshape the landscape of Eastern Scotland as shimmering and inventive instrumental music. Watch the trailer for the album below:

Where Themes for Buildings and Spaces (2017) toured the architecture and industry of Dundee, evoking a place caught between decay and regrowth, the Scottish Album of the Year Award shortlisted The Paralian (2019) explored the littoral exchanges between sea and shore on the North Sea coastline. Fugitive Light And Themes Of Consolation carries a trace of this arc on a return upriver, drifting back inland along the River Tay’s inner estuary: a record of the low light on winter fields, empty suburban streets at dawn, the deep clear waters of the quarry excavated to build the city.

Fugitive Light And Themes Of Consolation will be released on 4th September 2020 on vinyl, CD and digital through Athens Of The North Records. Pre-order a copy here.
