AUDIO: Cairns – “This is Also the Place”
Indie-experimental project Cairns is out with a new EP. Warm and gentle, these tracks are a continuation of John Larkin’s sonic expansion. He sings of meandering through isolation and meditation as blurry, wavy melodies crescendo into dynamic soundscapes. One of the most interesting segments here is the coda of “Dark and Calm” which features some delightful electronics sampling. Eli Smith contributes guitar and clarinet while Caley Conway and Eddie Chapman contribute some vocals. It’s an ideal record for not only the quarantine blues but the October cloud cover – we hope you enjoy Cairns as the cold weather continues setting in.
