Secret Boyfriend – Glissements

Out of stock


“Recorded in late 2019 to early 2020 during particularly introspective moments, ๐บ๐‘™๐‘–๐‘ ๐‘ ๐‘’๐‘š๐‘’๐‘›๐‘ก๐‘  presents a poignant crossroads for Ryan Martin’s long-running Secret Boyfriend moniker. A transition to digital recording techniques, an exploration of icy bell-like timbres, a proclivity for durational compositional structures… All are a departure from Martin’s previous output. We are presented with a razor-sharp clarity on ๐บ๐‘™๐‘–๐‘ ๐‘ ๐‘’๐‘š๐‘’๐‘›๐‘ก๐‘ , ready to ‘slide’ into despair or rapture. Martin chooses the latter, contemplating the psycho-social and physical wreckage of the 21st century and uplifting the listener to unheard utopias. Onwards – it’s not just a dream…” – Glyn Maier
