Six year later Grow in The Dark Safari Set, ISAN (Robin Saville and Antony Ryan) will return with a new album. Glass Bird Movement will be out on October 14th via Morr Music. Full streaming is available via indiemusic. Listen below.
On their first album in six years, ISAN once more weave together electronic soundscapes, delicate rhythms and the occasional odd sound into a pulsating, ever-morphing whole. Glass Bird Movement is Antony Ryan and Robin Saville’s eighth studio album since they have started the project two decades ago. Exchanging ideas between England and Denmark, where Ryan currently resides, ISAN have crafted an album which is reminiscent of heyday Boards Of Canada productions, the friendlier ventures of Aphex Twin or the most focused moments of Ulrich Schnauss, if you will. However, this album (as well their impressive back catalogue, as subtle it may seem) displays a strong signature. ISAN constantly move forwards without leaving their respective studios. And why should they – it’s warm and dry in there and the kettle is always boiling.
