Dalhous end the 5-year silence with the long
awaited follow up to House Number 44, presenting the 2nd volume of The
Composite Moods Collection. Point Blank Range reinterprets the established
narrative with an inverse look at the proceedings. Taking the “point of view of
the disease", the perspective is now turned inside out, revealing an
alternate account from the eyes of the photographed subject of House Number 44.
Listeners will be able to decipher nods to long
standing soundtrack influences from composers such as Fabio Frizzi, with his
use of strikingly bold and haunting melodies, to Tangerine Dream’s
distinctively foggy atmospheres. There are moments that evoke the nihilistic
drones of Brian Gascoigne, and the more horrific passages of metal clanging ambience
from the likes of Chu Ishikawa with his scores.
From opening track 'Transceivers' through to the
imploding nature of 'Intramuscular Administration’ Dalhous deliver another
psychedelic quasi-visual experience.
