09 Dec AMP Review: Will de Burca “Tomorrow’s Light & Darkness”
Will de Burca wants to take you dancing, and there is little that you will be able to do to deny him the request once you pop “Tomorrow’s Light and Darkness” into your music player. The opening track “Killer Curtis” is especially conducive. You can tell that Will has a lot invested in his tracks, both emotionally and time wise. He runs wild with his brush, splashing sound across the audible canvas with obvious joy and care. What he creates is not only danceable, but also atmospheric and luxurious at points. He keeps a tight rein on his pulsating beat, interspersing it with mellow, floating multicoloured clouds in “Visions we have are fading away.” Then he picks us up again, letting the synthesizer burrow trails in the ground upon which we bounce. Like the birds that adorn the cd cover, these are sound murmurations that for a moment flip their bellies towards a hot electric sun, and in the next turn their dance into a giant shadow on the landscape in which you have decided to project it.
