Pijn is an evolving northern collective, crafting expansive, lofty paeans to genuine pain and loss. The unit serves up catastrophe as catharsis; lumbering waves giving way to quietly considered calm.
Comprised of two undulating, expansive, pieces that serve as an oscillation between beauty and distress, ‘Floodlit’ is linked together by two smaller, yet no less weighty or poignant, tracks that only go to colour this sombre record even further.
A sound as much indebted to genre titans GY!BE and Mogwai as modern ‘post’ purveyors Russian Circles and Cult of Luna, the group’s debut ‘Floodlit’ seeks to harness musical and conceptual heaviness by new means.
