Is there such a thing as a combo of medieval folk music and darkwave? Yes, there is Unto Ashes and they released a new album in May this year. They’ve got a massive back catalogue, use a lot of unusual instruments and I can imagine that fans of Dead Can Dance might appreciate them. I do anyway and that’s the point of this post. The album Pretty Haunted Things has a pace of its own, like it’s from another realm entirely. The songs are slow in a way that makes you close your eyes, breathe deeper and slower, allows your pulse to go down and relax your body. Even my hyper brain is experiencing something that could be close to peace.
