Far - At Night We Live

A dark delight...

A few years ago we thought pigs would have more chance of flying than influential post- hardcore legends Far ever re-uniting, let alone releasing a brand new album. For once we’re happy to have been proved wrong. Right from the brooding, crunching chords of opener ‘Deafening’, from the off, ‘At Night We Live’, their first studio effort in 12 years, is a dark delight. ‘When I Could See’ is textbook Far: anthemic and driving yet with delicate semi acoustics and Jonah Matranga’s vocal sensibilities, while ‘Dear Enemy’ is a gnarly sonic jab in the ribs with prodding, hooky and discordant guitars. An outstanding return.

Subliminally crushing and psychadelic, 'Ascension' is a stellar effort...
