This is the fifth full length release from Polish instrumental post rock trio Tides From Nebula. It sees the band delving into cinematic landscapes of swirling synthesizers and hypnotic rhythms. Instrumental music can be a very tricky thing to pull off, especially one based in such a minimalist sub-genre as post-rock. The ability to keep the listeners attention without a central focal point like a vocalist is challenge enough, without throwing the baby of traditional song structures out with the bath water.
Formed in 2014 and previously known as Kamikaze Girls are Cultdreams, who in 2017 released their debut record Seafoam which received widespread praise for depicting life with depression and PTSD, whilst shining a light on harmful behaviour, sexual harassment and every-day misogyny in society. Nearly two years away from the studio to tour Seafoam in the UK/EU and across the Atlantic. Guitarist/vocalist Lucinda Livingstone and drummer Conor Dawson release a long-awaited second album, Things That Hurt via Big Scary Monsters.
In recent years, there has been an incredible surge in post punk music. From the dark, gothic overtones of a band like Grave Pleasures to the loaded political gunshots of Idles. The wave of 1980s nostalgia that has gripped the world for the last decade has gradually seeped into music and these bands are now coming to the fore.

Speaking about their forthcoming album, the band said “What is the size of the night? How can we measure the night? The night is a very personal moment. It can be majestic; spent indulged in love and joy or terribly frightening; filled with nightmares and fear. The size of this moment is hidden in the details that shake our bodies and keep our hearts beating.
