Album Title: Under The Waterline
Release Date:
Genre: Indie Pop
The single most striking thing about Hinterland's debut album 'Under The Waterline' is lead singer Michaela Galloway's vocals. Warbling and free-floating, her voice can best be compared to Bjork's or Thom Yorke's (of Radiohead), though Galloway really doesn't sound much like either. Backing Galloway is a core group of four musicians, who fill out Hinterland's ambient sound with just about every instrument they can get their hands on (all the usual, plus oboe, glockenspiel, flute, and the always popular EBow). All of the songs included on 'Under The Waterline' are quite long, and meld together to create an hour of flowing, ambient, rock music, with just a hint of New Age peeking through. Though their recorded music comes across beautifully, the atmosphere of Hinterland is probably taken up a few more notches when experienced live. The Vancouver five-piece delves into everything from prog rock to ambient electronica, and comes out with some exquisite star-gazing music perfect for doing some deep thinking, or simply falling asleep to.
