Review by Andy Webb
3 stars Pastures of atmospheric calm

Elysium Fields is the newest single by the young Maryland-based post rock band Until Sunrise. Comprised of a pleasant and slow crescendo through the entire track, it has a nice feeling and a nice atmosphere. I've stated numerous times I'm no fan of post rock; the music, in my opinion, is usually a boring waste of sonic energy, comprised of relatively repetitive ostinatos with tremolo guitar picking as an excuse for "ambient guitar." However, this song is a slightly pleasant surprise. Although this has a similar formula as most post rock, there are little things added in to the song, such a nice piano theme in the middle and a nice crescendo into a dramatic and releasing burst of energy. Overall, while still a typical post rock track that I'm not all that fond of, this single is a good output (and has great production, which is not seen on their debut) by this young band. 3 stars.

2 stars A mellow and beautiful track!

Nowadays we may say that post-rock is a musical genre that has gained a lot of followers due to its fresh sound and emotional atmospheres. Also, there are people who find inspiration in this genre, and contribute with their grain of sand. A young band from Maryland has now entered to the scene, and they are willing to stay there for a lifetime and of course, obtain recognition and followers.

With the internet facility, I have got closer to them since they offer their music for free (or pay what you want); and I am happy with what I listen. Until Sunrise is a trio who have released one studio and one live album so far, along with this latest single release of the song entitled "The Elysian Fields".

This five-minute track shares some evident Explosions in the Sky hints, which may have been one of Until Sunrise inspirations. The song has a beautiful sound with atmospheric textures, relaxing guitars, soft drums that little by little become more energetic until it reaches a climax. There is also a nice piano sound here and there, while the guitars turn emotional as well.

The song itself deserves at least three stars, but if you know the way I rate singles, then you know I hardly give more than two stars for an album that does not reach 20 minutes. So for a song, I just give two stars.

Enjoy it!
