Tӧrzs’ new album Tükör is a beautiful blend of melodic guitar work and impactful drumming, similar to the likes of Mogwai and 65daysofstatic. The whole album was recorded in a cave system at the Hungarian National Park, giving the album an incredible sense of emotion, adding a depth and clarity that can sometimes be lost on a more conventional recording.
Aside from the amazing production values on Tükör, the songwriting is equally as impressive and with all tracks being instrumental a lot of room is given for each instrument to breathe and hold its own within each composition. In addition, each track has its own unique chemistry demonstrating that this group of musicians have a clear understanding of each others musical techniques and flourishes that merge beautifully together, making it sound as if they’re playing just for the listener alone.
From the track ‘Negyedik’ onwards the record becomes much more alive with the sound of the cave system becoming incredibly powerful, every surface reflecting back a flurry of sound that fills every gap in the music, creating a sense of the three piece being a much larger group. Tükör has been created with love and passion and every post-rock fan should add this album to their collection.
Tükör is available now via Golden Antenna Records and can be purchased here.
