While the chiming beauty of their undisputed classic The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place remains at the core of Explosions in the Sky's sound the Texans have never rested on their laurels and sixth album The Wilderness is further testament to that. It's a record by a band forever expanding outward - their love of electronic music has never been more evident than here and they've not been afraid to chop their once-epic song lengths in half. A proud addition to a fearsome back catalogue.

 

"Explosions In The Sky return. It's the band's sixth album, and first non-soundtrack release since 2011's 'Take Care, Take Care, Take Care'. True to its title, 'The Wilderness' explores the infinite unknown, utilizing several of the band's own definitions of "space" (outer space, mental space, physical geography of space) as compositional tools. It is an album where shoegaze, electronic experimentation, punk damaged dub, noise, and ambient folk somehow coexist without a hint of contrivance - and cohere into some of the most memorable and listenable moments of the band's expansive body of work - 'proper' studio albums and major motion picture soundtracks alike. If 'The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place' was the defining album of Explosions In The Sky's career, 'The Wilderness' is the band's (re)defining album."
