The Copenhagen based duo Small Things on Sundays are proud to present their first LP, "Searching For", the seventh album release by the duo - but the first that will be available on vinyl. Small Things on Sundays have focused on their musical vision to create an album of beauty and shade, which will take the listener on a sound journey exploring the filmic images the tracks presents. It can be investigated with further listenings revealing subtle details.
The title "Searching For" refers to the duo's own quest to create new moods and athmospheres, where time stretches out, as the listener, and the band themselves, submerges into harmonic ambient layers and more abstract unsettling textures that emerge from the improvisations. To be engulfed in these mesmerizing sounds, can serve as a way to step out of daily life for a moment, which seems needed now and again.
"Searching For" can also be seen as an imaginary interpretation of places on earth, like "Echo Lake at Night", or in space "Enceladus" (Earth-like moon orbiting Saturn). The basic sounds on the LP are derived from live improvisations, using turntables, detuned guitar, toy keyboard, viola and laptops. Some of the tracks are kept as the first live-takes, other tracks are the product of long hours of re-imagining and re-arranging tracks from the sound archive.
