The IDMf netlabel is proud to present When the Path Fades, a dark and compelling EP by Nyul.

Guitars and pianos play wistful melodies behind haunting ambient tones. The EP contains no percussion, an artistic choice that would leave a lot of music sounding empty and directionless in its pace and rhythm, but works brilliantly for Nyul. Nothing is missing. Every sound and every note serves a purpose.

The music inspires a lot of imagery, partially through its attention to detail. A distant whistle behind a growling bass, noises with timbres that subtly change, all add to the nuances of the picture that is painted.

At times powerful and dramatic, at times minimal, calm, melancholy and sometimes totally still, When the Path Fades is beautiful in its melancholy. Dropping hints of post-rock onto a bed of dark and ambient electronica, it feels almost orchestral in its outlook.
