The villainous ambient/metal/experimental rock entity that is Picture Ann has evoked a short 5-track EP titled Strange Forces – The Instrumental Sketches and released it via Bandcamp, YouTube, Amazon, Spotify, and countless other digital retailers out there.
Consisting of the twisted musical motifs and ideas that originally figured on the concept album titled Strange Forces (2019), here they are presented as individual tracks in their raw, sparkling, and freshly remastered form without the spoken words or droning soundscapes floating underneath them. Directly inspired by Bram Stoker’s unsettling and sinister gothic horror opus The Lair of the White Worm, these five pieces of psychedelic melancholy are as effective as anything in the band’s wider catalogue of dreadful and depressing tunes.
