“Airborne” is a collaborative album from Angel Simitchiev (Mytrip, Dayin), also the first one released under his real name, and Linus Schrab (V I C I M, Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet, Purlieu Recordings). Throughout its seven tracks we observe two individual creative visions organically merging to shape a sound of its own. “Airborne” was recorded in May 2019, during an intense creative weekend in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The album showcases different facets of Simitchiev and Schrab’s rich musical palettes. From the ritualistic melancholia of opener ‘Initiation’, the industrial intensity of ‘A Smoke That Will Never Clear’, to the anemoia-inducing ghostly melodies of the self-titled piece and the dystopian, yet forlorn soundscapes of the album’s longest piece ‘Spores of Humanity’, “Airborne” is a work that combines ambient delicacy with the intensity of noise and post-industrial soundscapes.
