PELICAN 'Ataraxia / Taraxis'
Ataraxia/Taraxis is the long-awaited follow-up to PELICAN's sprawling 2009 full-length What We All Come to Need. With members now residing in different cities the EP represents a new chapter in the band's evolution. The four new songs highlight the manifold sonic strengths of the band by delving into moments of triumphant melodic rock, smokey doom, ambient soundscape, acoustic desert-folk and minimalist electronics. The carefully crafted track listing boasts a cohesive narrative flow, lending the release of a truly epic feel, worthy of a full album.
