Boomkat product review for:

christina vantzou - No.1

Precious ambience and stately neo-classical constructions from Christina Vantzou, previously best known as one half of Kranky duo The Dead Texan. Following her recent debut solo appearance on Ghostly's SMM compilation (alongside the likes of Leyland Kirby, Svarte Greiner, Peter Broderick), Vantzou has cultivated an incredibly mature and resonant sound, all stirring strings, gravity-defying drones and distant, elegiac horns reverbed to perfection - but this isn't just a triumph of production and arrangement, it's also an estimable and characterful work of composition, swelling to some truly heart-stopping melodic climaxes. There might be a lot of similarly styled music around at the moment, but we'll always make time for such impressive examples of the genre as this. A must-check for people who've been feeling A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Max Richter, The Sight Below et al.
