Commenced in the aftermath of a bereavement it’s perhaps not surprising that Lost Horizons’ In Quiet Moments has the ambience of a musical partnership searching for solace through music; locking themselves away in a studio to spend hours building up layers of carefully conceived musical patterns.

Absolutely breathtaking in places (Tim Smith collaboration Grey Tower and Penelope Isles feature Halcyon), Quiet Moments succeeds by collecting a universe of sounds and rhythms, mixing them with a diverse portfolio of collaborators, and creating a multi-layered collection which hang together through consistent experimentalism and love for pop melody.

Moving across genres, songs link the out of this world abstraction of the Flaming Lips (Every Beat That Passed) with the high-concept art of the Velvet Underground (the seven-minute, multi-tracked vocal of John Grant’s Cordelia) this is a masterpiece of concept, design and execution.
