Yndi Halda

Enjoy Eternal Bliss - 2006

Origin Point:
United Kingdom

Sounds Like:
Post Rock, Progressive, Ambient, Contemporary Classical

Ethereal post-rock from the southernmost fields of England.

Yndi Halda is an act of few compositions, and only one official release. However, their début contains four tracks of masterful post-rock; beautifully-crafted with wistful cinematic progressions and a heavy use of classical stringed instruments, resulting in a captivating listen from beginning to end. Making extensive use of quiet, almost silent sections - most notably the two minutes of silence at the start of their first track that slowly bleeds into a flowering of emotive sound - these four songs come together to form an entire suite of music that lasts the best part of an hour.

It's essential listening for any follower of the genre, and a fine starting point for those new to the post-rock sound.

To listen to their music, simply click on the album covers to be taken to their respective pages. If you've any recommendations based on this artist, or wish to promote some music that you yourself enjoy, please do so in the comments. Maybe I'll end up enjoying something enough to feature it myself.
