Neither Larkian or Yellow6 are easily categorised, but both differ from each other. The mixing of the two styles creates something all its own whilst retaining the individual. By using an impressive range of effects and ways to play guitar ‘Offtempo’ offers various sound textures and landscapes, from shoegaze inspired reverb to atmospheric ambiences or epic post-rock melodies. At times, it is hard to say who played what, which is a good thing, showing it is not just a superposition of two different styles. The music tends towards the melancholy but maintains an air of optimism.
I love this album for so many reasons. The stories, the ambiant, the fatalist yet hopeful tone... It's a brilliant piece of soul-touching music I'd recommend to anyone. (And the art in the booklet is wonderful, but that's not the subject here.) w4nd3r3r
