DEMO ’23 – Elrond (2023) – Album Review

Album: DEMO ’23

Artist: Elrond

Release Date: March 9, 2023

Elrond, an electronic music duo hailing from the lush landscapes of Oregon, has been captivating the underground electronic scene with their unique and harmonious blend of organic and synthetic sounds, mirroring the lush planet of plastic and organic matter we all live on.

This album is an interesting change of pace for Elrond. Written and performed by one half of the duo, Ian Gorman Weiland, this is more of a one sided affair stuffed with a complex tapestry of textures. It layers beautifully into a broken and re-animated heartbeat of digital chaos. It could almost be classified as ambient noise, but it’s too centered and requires your attention – and your respect. There’s no manipulation and no motion is wasted. It’s chaotic and absolutely beautiful.

This album is telling you that it’s time to move on and just enjoy the chaos that’s headed your way. There’s nothing you can do to stop it, so just let it take you away and wash you thoroughly. Bathe in the static and let it echo through your body.

It’s a concise album that distills the essence of their signature sound into a potent, immersive experience. Highly recommended – dive in.
