Vienna-based musician Pieter Gabriel caught our attention a few months ago with the quite spectacular covers EP “CVRS” and Sleep Sleep returned at the start of November with the debut album “Gospel”. The 8 track album released on Noise Appeal Records is a highly addictive work of musical art full of tracks which instantly feel like they have been a part of you forever. It is probably how Beach House would sound if they lived in the Viennese capital….
“Sunrise”, the first single to be released is a veritable soundscape as Gabriel’s prophetic voice lazily takes over you like an early morning summer haze.
Gospel is an exquisitely produced piece of downbeat indie-electro which finds a perfect balance between melancholy and hope. “Take The Money and Run” will have you hooked from the first listen while “Old Joy”, “Twin Peaks” and “Smile” return to the beautifully misty fog of sounds which dominate much of the album.
