Cliff Dweller’s The Dream in Captivity is something not of this world. In terms of attitude, F#A#∞ comes closest in comparison. It never settles in to one genre neatly, with its mix of noise, drone, ambient, musique concrète and neo-classical elements, which only contributes to the already chaotic atmosphere The Dream in Captivity exudes. It’s like Cliff Dweller came to visit you in a dream and ripped open a portal to their world, which consists of rain, wailing sirens, planes traveling overhead, winds and a lack of sunlight. This world they live in is either a nightmare scenario or a dream come true for you. You decide to take a step through the portal out of fascination, morbid curiosity or a bit of both and you just look up to the sky to let the cool rain hit your face. Stay for a while. Listen to The Dream in Captivity below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
