|CHARLY COOMBES BLACK MOON Limited Deluxe 200gram Vinyl LP
DELUXE LP VERSION!!!! on "deep black" 200g vinyl!!!!!
At some point in our lives, we all face a journey of some kind. A journey of progression or regression, of growth or of loss. A literal venture, or a metaphorical migration.
Written and recorded over a two year period, through his own odyssey of change and adversity, the new album from Charly Coombes presents ten stories of the most incredible journeys humanity has faced, and a few speculative ones from our distant future. Ten songs of our necessity to survive and to find a purpose in the darkness around us.
"BLACK MOON" is a conceptual album, that not only focuses on a darker, more sinister look at the past, present and future of space travel and our place among the stars, but also serves as a reflection of our own trials and exploration.
From the fragile endeavors of the early space race, to the death and lament of Mercury, swallowed by the Sun. From a song of love from our languishing and lonely moon to the Earth, to a hypothetical future search for humanity's new home beyond our Heliosphere.
Whether you embrace or reject the notion of "explore or expire", this album serves as a mirror to the infinite journey inside us all. Our own unique combination of light and darkness, in equal measure. Our Black Moon.
Former member of 22-20s, The New Breed and long-time session for Gaz Coombes and Supergrass, Charly Coombes will be releasing this long awaited second album in September 2015.
