The delicate tones of Archaellum
By Unsound • Issue #3 • View online
Lane 8’s label, This Never Happened, continues to move from strength to strength with this short and stunningly beautiful debut EP by newcomers Archaellum.

At first glance, this 3 track EP seems too short to be true. However, This Never Happened has a habit of releasing high quality discographies from relatively unknown artists that barely span the 3 track mark. I think of Massane’s incredible trio of EPs as part of his Visage project.
Archaellum is a collaboration between Hexlogic (a This Never Happened alumni) and Felt Habit. Their debut EP takes you on a subtle, but pensive journey through the keys of a gentle piano.
What are my thoughts?
Although shorter EPs leave you hungry for more, their brevity can often be a welcome distraction from the meatier EPs and albums found out there in the wild.
Reflections takes you on a musical trip across distant lakes and across sprawling mountains with an ever-present piano gently caressing your ear drums from Reflections to Last Glow and finally to Deluge.
Each track exudes more and more melancholy and harks back to a time where things were far simpler – a great background track for a short and intense piece of deep work.
