Ross Downes is a London based artist and musician. Using guitar and synthesisers his focus of late has been upon atmospheric electro works. Finding a medium between experimentation and melodic tunes Downes draws upon ambient, kraut, minimalist and soundtrack influences. The recordings range from delicate guitar pieces to dissonant experimental soundscapes. He is also active in a number of other collaborative projects.
Making highly atmospheric instrumentals, the interweaving guitars are accompanied by drums and viola in the creation of cinematic soundscapes. Suggestive of open terrain and movement through far flung landscapes the country-tinged melodies combine folk-country inflection with post-rock structuring.
'A band attuning folk roots into a slow and languishing type of post-rock, they end up making melodramatic lounge music, the kind that’s only a bar closing time away from being "Wicked Game" ' Norman Records
