KLONE - The Dreamer's Hideaway / VINYL 2xLP (sand & brass, ltd.250)
Pelagic Recs. distributed release / Germany import
With their 4th album “The Dreamer’s Hideaway”, originally released in 2012, these self-professed King Crimson devotees continue the shifts towards a more elaborated and diverse sound, while also emphasizing the finer points of tempo and melody. Packed with surprises, the songs are absolutely compelling and boast a remarkable range and variation, but without ditching the signature elements of their sound, namely sharp, powerful guitar riffs, swirling and ethereal keyboards, a crisp and dynamic rhythmic section, and Yann Ligner’s emotional and impressive vocals.
KLONE have been around for 15 years and have perfectioned their expansive and exploratory sound to the greatest level of detail during this long an fruitful existence. This year, after the great success of „Here Comes The Sun“, PELAGIC RECORDS are (re-)releasing 3 of their back catalogue albums on CD, and for the first time on vinyl format: 2010’s „Black Days“, 2012’s „The Dreamer’s Hideaway“ and 2012’s „The Eye Of Needle“ (EP).
„The Dreamer’s Hideaway“ comes with 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks: acoustic versions of „Rocket Smoke“ and „Into The Void“.
„possibly the best kept secret in France right now“ – TOTAL GUITAR
„Klone can do what Opeth and Katatonia do“ – METAL HAMMER (Germany)
