5 piece Danish Instrumental post-rock band The Shaking Sensations have released a music video for their song “Sightings”. It’s taken from the upcoming How Are We To Fight The Blight? album.
The album will released by Pelagic Records on the 4th of October 2019. How Are We To Fight The Blight? is the follow up to their 2013 album Start Stop Worrying.
While the month of June saw a new and unorthodox, fresh approach to the genre with the release of the towering 1st single, “Tremendous Efforts”, “Sightings” encapsulates the well-known virtues and showcases a band still more than capable of unfolding a world of lush, dreamy loud and majestic post-rock.

“Sightings” starts out with cascades of distorted guitars, synthesizers and the two drummers pounding synchronically towards its first climax, then dissolves into a long and somewhat retaining build-up, that gradually introduces new elements, while the drummers carefully opens up the spectre beat by beat, period by period.
The shimmering guitars fades out and leaves room for the next part of the song to open up. From here chaos is evident and unavoidable. “Sightings” unfolds into a sheer power display of guitar-shredding , thundering double drums and beautifully cohesive melodies tangled into each other towards the ever looming ending.
“Sightings” is in many ways a classic TSS-song, but then again it contains a fresh take on a classic setting and an ever-present unpredictability that keeps the listener committed from the very first stroke until the last guitar feedback disappears in the misty distance.
I have to admit that “Sightings” has a calming effect on me. I’m not a huge fan of melodic music, but this is pretty damn good. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
