Boomkat Product Review:
Whisper-quiet piano 'n vocals softness from the veteran Czech duo who've racked up two decades of releases.
Irena Havlová and Vojtěch Havel have been releasing collaborative work since 1990. "Melodies in the Sand" is their latest, exploring the interplay between cloudy piano riffs and Havlová's ghostly vocals, sitting in the space between ambient music and classical-folk experimentation. At times, it sounds like Grouper jamming with Meredith Monk, all smeared tones and transcendent melodies.
There's been a lot of ambient-adjacent piano music birthed in the last decade, and plenty of it has been no more than wallpaper for luxury condos. "Melodies in the Sand" avoids the association simply because it exists in its own space, where European folk tradition meets the blissful dreampop haze of Harold Budd and the Cocteau Twins.
