Gabriel & Dresden – White Walls [EP Review]
Gabriel & Dresden have returned in a momentous way. Announcing their first album after eleven years with the release of their touching progressive trance record “With Closed Eyes,” the duo has released the next chapter in their forthcoming project in the form of Waiting For Winter/ White Walls.
Waiting For Winter/ White Walls induces bittersweet euphoria across two tracks. Its opener, “Waiting For Winter,” employs Jan Burton’s warm vocals within an sentimental underlay, carrying the listener in an upward direction with soft note progressions and happy melodies. “White Walls” takes on a similar tone as well, albeit just a touch more poignant. Sub Teal’s voice sings of returning home, flowing freely over twinkling chords and moving synth arrangement.
Both tracks are a reminder of Gabriel & Dresden’s unique sonic imprint, one that plants itself firmly in the human psyche as one to follow.
