Mesh - Looking Skyward


Last topics on forum:


"Looking Skyward" is a completely different release and although the advance single ‚Kill Your Darlings' reminds of ‚Born To Lie', the album's mood and sound are different.
After all, Mark Hockings and Rich Silverthorn have also changed their approach to producing. Mark confesses: "For ‚Looking Skyward', we juggled with different ideas, used smartphones, laptops or tablets and walked the streets with audio recorders making samples. The demos were recorded all over the world, we even wrote our own software and made photos in abandoned factories, not to forget a great video."
Apart from that, the focus of "Looking Skyward" lies on the music itself. This record is more accessible and in part poppier as in ‚Last Man Standing', ‚The Fixer'. Analogue synthesizers in ‚My Protector’ and classical ballads ‚Before The World Ends' convey a certain retro charm, so it is different while still maintaining Mesh's core strengths - an equally synthetic and organic melancholy or wistfulness supported by Mark's incredibly strong singing and Rich's intense arrangements.
