Abode of Kings in a Derelict Kingdom
Gunsling Birds is driving through Main Street late at night and noticing how the rain cleans the streets when we sleep; a candle-light image of a familiar room. There is a refreshing clarity innate in the tones and timbres which can at once leave you spellbound, and utterly distracted. Abode of Kings is an album about both exploration and isolation and an insular travel in a dream-like state. It traverses the realm of the gentle and melancholy, punctuated by the periodic clamor of noisy ambience. Drawing on rich and diverse arrangements, it illustrates a world that is both desperate and desolate, but also fragile and precious.
