The next track is Orbiting and it'sonly a mere 6 minutes long. The guitars are much more prominent though those weird 80's Synthpop keyboards are present too. There's an Opeth-like quiet passage halfway through that stops Orbiting becoming too repetitive. Again, the vocals are quite sporadic but incomprehensible to me. I'm woefully un-KVLT.
Following that is the track 11 which is frustratingly 11 minutes and 4 seconds long. I'm sure they could have shaved those four seconds off somewhere and made it much more pleasing to the OCD. Musically it falls somewhere between the first two songs; the guitars are prominent but it's slower and more atmospheric. I'm really liking what the plinky plonky keyboards bring to their music. They don't sound silly or out of place but maybe give it a retro Sci-Fi feel. Listening to 11 You can easily imagine yourself adrift in a crippled spacecraft watching yourself slowly tumble towards an unnamed gas giant and an undecided fate.
The fourth and final track is an instrumental called Constellations that kicks of with some electronic beats that are kind of Drum n' Bass in nature. All of a sudden, everything crashes in and we're into the most urgent the band have sounded so far, The guitars chug away but the keyboards could be straight from some cheesy 90's europop band. It shouldn't work but it does, very well. After a couple of minutes the music fades out to just a synth and multi-layered choir vocals, similar to the Halo theme if you remember that? they eventually fade out and there's a peculiar, quiet electronic droning left in the wake.
Pillars is an impressively absorbing piece of work, it's immersive and emotional if not something you'd want to listen to casually. It needs undivided attention to appreciate fully. You should have a listen at least once. Oh and the internet says EP so that's that sorted too.
4 out of 5 - This is really good and well worth checking out.
