COMMON EIDER, KING EIDER - Presents Track From Upcoming Album

Common Eider, King Eider, an evolving art and music collaboration between Rob Fisk (Badgerlore, Six Organs Of Admittance/Hexadic collaborator), Vicky Fong, Andee Connors (A Minor Forest), Andrew Weathers and Blaine Todd, will release on 7th September through Cyclic Law the first chapter in Common Eider, King Eider’s Wound “duology”, A Wound Of Body, forming the group’s most focused and fully realised work to date. This is a potent mix of blackened ambience, drone and silence incorporating viola, vast chorale arrangements, and field recordings. Offering a sprawling, audial exploration of wounds at once physical and spiritual, social and societal, natural and environmental. A Wound Of Body is a beautifully stark soundscape, dolorously dense, suffocatingly oppressive and utterly claustrophobic. An immersive black hole of bleak, cavernous drone music and disquieting, desolate ambience, each track a hushed and harrowing ritual; the surface minimalism underpinned by a churning morass of sound, a layered liturgy of blackened invocations and nebulous strings hovering in the shadows. Presented in a beautiful black and silver duotone sleeve, adorned with images of micro-landscapes rendered in bone, stark images of the alien, otherworldly topography that lurks beneath the skin, emblematic of the inevitable decay and disintegration of our physical forms: the ruin we become, and the ruin we leave behind. Layout Design by Yoli at Aponeurotica. Listen to the track named "Sinew Stretched Over Crumbling Bones" in the player below. Link
