Industrial Silence

Madrugada is a new Norwegian group that reflects the mood of the new millennium: atmospheric, introspective, fluid, mysterious and sparse but elegant: A sort of melancholic road movie sound-track under the Northern lights. industrial silence is the artistic extension of the 4AD releases from the 80's (e.g., This Mortal Coil, Dead Can Dance etc). Industrial Silence is not a new age release but a post-modern one where the voice is used as an instrument in order to create introspec-tive beauty that reflects a modern sensitivity. An extraordinary mixture of American alternative rock and melancholy ala Chris Isaac, Mazzy Star or Grant Lee Buffalo.
