Gengahr’s beautiful mind weaves patterns far beyond the basic.

'Album' of 'the Week'


Label: Transgressive Records.
Released: 9th March 2018
Rating: ★★★★

There’s no doubt, Gengahr’s debut full-length ‘A Dream Outside’ was a remarkable piece of work. Coming in the midst of a new wave of exciting, emerging talent, it sparkled with promise that went beyond critical acclaim. While it may not have catapulted them into the realms of massive arenas, it set foundations to build future rocket ships to the stars.

In comparison, ‘Where Wildness Grows’ is Gengahr’s light speed engine. More organic and - for want of a better word - real than science-fiction metaphors suggest, it’s a record that doesn’t just build but evolves, reaching out like rapidly stretching vines. From the woozy ‘Mallory’ to the driving ‘Carrion’ and the sparkling, standout title track, Gengahr’s beautiful mind weaves patterns far beyond the basic.

Breaking the templates, this isn’t the sound of a band too concerned with being smart to write songs. Matching higher callings with raw emotion, Gengahr continue to grow. Stephen Ackroyd
