This is a Minneapolis based trio with two strings and one drummer formed in 2010. They deliver a powerfully hypnotic blend of classical instrumental music and rock. Their tunes are charged with Celtic tones and the repetition of their sets resemble a lot the work of Philip Glass. Despite having recorded a few movies scores, like “Requiem for a Dream” they are relatively unknown. This band is one of the few that can carry me into a trance. I have gotten into a complete state of nirvana while listening to these songs and solving mathematical equations. There is not much else to say other than they are amazing to listen to.
Here are my top picks. Enjoy!
Pierce the Night
Towers Fall into the Sea
Requiem for a dream (From the movie with the same title)
Darkness gives way
