WHAT THE RELEASE NOTES SAY:
Islands, volcanoes and instrumental exile stories…
From Overseas is the experimental ambient project by Kévin Séry.
Originally from the tiny French overseas department and region, Reunion Island, he routinely bounces between his home island, a small port town on the east coast of the US and continental Europe picking up fresh ideas and inspiration along the way.
With a beautiful master by Stephan Mathieu (12k, Shelter Press, …), From Overseas releases his first full length album “Home” on PITP.
“Home" is a journey through beautiful soundscapes where dark and light intertwine, where ambient tones give way to post-rock guitar craft, then segway to melodic drone, noise and back again. These soothingly powerful songs evoke emotions on a full spectrum, dreamy unplanned travels and inspire us to question the nature of the place that each of us calls home.
The fourth track, Maloya Tales, is a personal tribute to Séry's homeland 'Reunion Island' and gives the listener a glimpse of the mystical rhythms of traditional Reunionese Maloya music.
