Picture Ann are caught somewhere between Blind Optimism and a Bleak Prophecy

The brand-new output by the musically devious post-rockers Picture Ann has just arrived digitally and sees the Danish/Norwegian act conjuring up thick waves of dark ambient and drone music that explore the disruptive power of loss. Thematically speaking, the three compositions that constitute Blind Optimism – Bleak Prophecy all revolve around the postmodernist claim that the past is subject to reinterpretation in light of the present and where that leaves us. Why do we insist on inhabiting metaphorical landscapes of estrangement while desperately trying to uncover transcendent timeless meaning in a wild and uncontrollable world when our own troubled memories are anything but reliable? And what if nothing comes next?

Check them out on Bandcamp.
