With his 2015 album "Colony", Josh Graham (A Storm of Light, ex-Neurosis, ex-Red Sparowes, ex-Battle of Mice...) coined the genre "Ambient Fiction" for his musical project IIVII. This moniker couldnt be more apt, as Graham is exploring the boundaries between ambient music and science fiction themes. IIVIIs music is difficult to pigeonhole: making use of analogue synths and tape loops, the music refers to eighties film music on the one hand, a nod to the Berlin school ambient on the other hand, but nonetheless sounding refreshingly contemporary. The modus operandi of layering droning sounds and crafting eerie soundscapes is forwarded to his new album "Invasion", but Graham expanded on the IIVII sound with more percussive elements, giving the music an extra drive and ominous urgency. As usual, the visual side of the album is absolutely stunning, hinting at the great invasion movies that make up the collective memory. We cant wait to see "Invasion" come to life live, with Grahams signature visuals complementing this incredible music.
