Blurred City Lights: Volker

Volker is the sophomore album from the experimental soundscaping duo Blurred City Lights, aka Dean Garcia (SPC ECO, Curve) and Jarek Leskiewicz (Sunset Wrecks, Opollo). The ten tracks are powerful orchestral rock, with the duo creating a sound so large the mere universe cannot contain it. This is experimental music at its best, genre defying, instrumentally complex yet melodically accessible. What you'll find are huge guitars, tight rhythm sections, industrial touches, inspired synths and a level of musicianship that is rarely attained in what is fundamentally rock music. This is an absolute must have. Stream and buy Volker at the link below.
