Mark Pritchards latest album The Four Worlds is a short but enjoyable collection of music that sits somewhere between ambient and club music. Its restraint in composition is also its strong point, allowing each sound to breathe, accentuating their qualities.
On Circle of Fear the lead melody also creates the rhythm for lush pads and strings to underpin. There is a mix of something both sweet and sinister about the track. Its surface level stays the same, but the morphing chords change the feel of the piece subtly as it straddles this fine line between the dark and the light.
