Rakafeed - States

Found this album a while ago and was pretty blown away by it. It really benefits from some good headphone listening time. There are loads of exquisite beautiful & precisely delivered moments here which, for me, really lifts this album above the rest. Hope you enjoy it as well

" Rakafeed are primary arbiter Richard Northen in association with Plan B, Florence and the Machine and Massive Attack collaborator Sally Herbert and guitaristElliot King.
Rakafeed architect, Richard Northen is a master of composition. Already responsible for underground compositions for Slow Moving Mille (actress Amelia Warner) formerSteve Lawler collaborator and Balearic producer Kevin Swain, and the award winning young director Ilaria D'Elia, whose next film he is scoring, he is delighted to be at the helm of Rakafeed's debut.

Featuring seven beautiful, autumn ready compositions, States is cinematic, electronic, complex yet accessible and influenced by classical music. Short-attention-span types will find it challenging, but others will be immersed in the luscious sounds and textures.
"The music is for late at night. It has a sense of expansiveness - it allows you to have random thoughts," says Northen.
Call it ambient or chill-out if you must - but you won't mistake it for just another ambient record"
