4 track split EP release by Hello1103 and Gargle. The “Angraecum EP” is a collection of “prayer” themed auditory bliss from the two bands.
After several previous encounters at live venues, the two bands, with common qualities and a sense of strong storytelling, came together under a single “Angraecum.”
The English lyrics on “Calling” by Hello1103 were written by Lynne Hobday who is known for her lyrical work on tracks such as “ICO –You were there-“. The monumental 7 minute long track offers listeners a sonic experience that embodies an essence of a distant journey.
“Unfinished Prayer” by Gargle features a lyrically depicted soundscape backed by French string musicians the band is acquainted with.
The tracks were developed on the shared theme of “prayers,” a universal theme that various artists had approached throughout the ages. For this EP, Gargle responded to this keyword that is evident in recent Hello1103 works.
