One Day Band 20 features a collaboration between guitarist and composer Marina Elderton, drummer and electronic musician Nicholas Meredith (AKA Kcin) and violinist, composer Alicia Jane Turner.
As you’d expect from this trio ODB 20 is a highly atmospheric, darkly ambient collection. Nicholas’s drumming varies with industrial din and metallic klang above a sure footed driving kick and free-wheeling kinetic energy. FX pedals augment Marina’s guitar and Alicia’s violin, enabling a textural approach that strays into soundscape and filmic suggestions. Foreboding drones fluctuate and distort amidst spectral effected voices, a pitch-shifted seance that haunts throughout the session. It’s the rewarding culmination of three musicians comfortable and attuned in a mutual exploration that complements a shared aesthetic of confident experimentation.
