The sound of everything rushing back at once, receding as fast as it came, and leaving more to linger. The story of how we're bound, for better or worse.
Debut album No Beyond out now.
praise for no beyond
“Fuses the grand qualities of post rock, the heavy heart of shoegaze and dreampop, and the weightiness of doom. ...epic, intense and profoundly melancholic, balancing between gloom and hope with elegance.”
“An emotional and musical journey that places the listener face-to-face with their best and worst tendencies, their hopes and fears... It's an impressive debut and an ambitious one.”
“[Bound] already seems comfy in its mind-meld, and you can hear it on No Beyond, a solemn, spacious debut...forged inside a circle of trust.”
“Practically post-everything. ... A complex fog of slow-breath mood and bottomless, elegant melancholy. ... There are only two meaningful ways to experience this band: at volume on a stentorian stereo with no neighbors or live. In person, they don’t just play, they envelop, like a magnificent hurricane of pristine fuzz and groan.”
“There is something about Bound’s thoughtful and deliberate pursuit of divergent atmospheres that leaves behind a deep emotional resonance. No Beyond skirts the line between dreamy reverie and thunderous intensity...to weave an immersive tapestry of brooding sound.”
“Bound is accomplishing a lot that some other great bands took another album to get to. ...We’re all-in on this album. Loved it, absolutely loved it. ...Reflects a complete and total vision. It really comes through.”
“Time to put Washington D.C.’s Bound on your radar.”
“Soft and gentle, yet intense and powerful... It will take you on a downward spiral of musical darkness. Be forewarned. And also be excited. Overall this entire album shows an incredible attention to musical detail, and it is that kind of album you can just let play through, a rare commodity nowadays. ”
“A blueprint for modern progressive/post-rock, and it’s f***ing beautiful.”
“[Bound] work like fog, bringing in ephemeral melodic layers that swirl together to create something surprisingly heavy.”
“Truly unforgettable and incredibly haunting.”
