Apparently this was a track written for a project that fell through a couple of years ago, but it’s so chilling and wintery that synthesizer overlord Steve Moore though it best to release it this X-Mas.
‘Carol Of The Bells’ is a haunting, atmospheric peice that immediately makes you feel cold. It’s an icy soundscape, but shot through with a strain of hopefulness, like being lost in the dark and seeing a light. I’m not sure if it’s X-Massy or not (probably, in a creepy ‘80’s BBC children’s X-Mas drama way), but it’s beautiful nonetheless.
Steve Moore’s new album, ‘Brainstorms’, is released January 2012.
