Producer and artist VOFF has crafted a blissfully ambient, melodic and reflective new album, which is perfectly well-catered to accompany late nights and deep thoughts as much so as an easy-going day of calm.

Ever since the strength of their last album, the name has conjured up a noteworthy place to turn when musical escapism feels essential. This single breathes new life into the space once again, holding close to those recognisable qualities but adding more than a few notes of freshness at the same time.

This album is something like progressive shoe-gaze, less soaked in reverb, with a little more clarity, and really just a creatively free and fairly unique angle to it. Worth a listen if considerate and intentional songwriting draws you in – as well as delicately hard-hitting rock backdrops.

Sandy’s lyrics on Nightsky appear as notably personal, intimate and uninhibited – addressing a significant other, in a manner that feels almost like a reading from a private letter. The breathy and gentle nature of the delivery, along with the simple ambiance surrounding it, helps really reinforce this honest and genuine approach.

Norway’s SIENNÁ returns this year with a post-six-minute offering that is the ambient and conceptual What Matters. The song takes its time to work through the various ideas within – this appears as a necessary artistic process for the songwriter, rather than a simple attempt to gather an audience and entertain.
