Steve Mahoney A stunning album. Incredible ambient music. I have no words to describe this. The album artwork is stunning. I hope we see more from Blinkar Fan Norr on A Strangely Isolated Place record label.

tomwex The artwork is gorgeous. All tracks can be played at 33 or 45rpm which gives them either a dark or (slightly) uplifting twist. The sound is super immersive, just like being in some kind of hyperspace with the occasional ghostly organ or synth to pull you in a different direction. Incredible work! Favorite track: Awakening.

The debut album from Sardinian composer Blinkar från Norr covers a rich, atmospheric and melancholic stretch of territory. Metaphors For Things was born from composer Andrea Garau’s own personal experience of the world today, brought to life through currents of powerful sound and an always shifting but ever-pensive state.

The album aims to express the negative conflicts and diseases often seen in people and modern society, capturing thoughts, emotions and feelings that can generate internal conflicts, anxieties and fears.

Mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri and featuring artwork by Noah M / Keep Adding, Metaphors For Things is available on Transparent, colored smoke gatefold vinyl and digital download.
