A Lull

From Chicago in the USA, A Lull is a band comprising five multi-instrumentalists, Nigel Dennis, Todd Miller, Mike Brown, Aaron Vincel and Ashwin Deepankar, who take the listener on a journey of discovery. From yesterdays article, which I expected would have arisen out of a Banter-Media introduction, here is one of their introductions.

A Lull

I am writing this on a Bank Holiday Monday and it sits perfectly with the day – relaxed, chilled and simultaneously generating a sense of well-being. Unhurried, I think is the best description, they have the confidence to let the music gradually evolve and and spread its seed. Global influences are smartly captured, disseminated and echo back through the compositions.

It would have been easy for A Lull to over-step in to the land of self-indulgence, but they manage to remain comfortably on the side of indulging the audience in warm and lilting refrains, with the edge to ensure the sounds don’t get lost in the interaction. Fuzzy echoes reverberate over the ears while trance vocal ensnares the brain, in the background tribal percussion beats in time with the heart, or does the heart syncopate with the percussion.
