Producers Chris Davids and Liam Ivory are from a small British village, which might be why their work as Maribou State retains a sense of the natural. Their cover art for début album Portraits looks like an aerial shot of a forest that’s been digitally smeared, and that’s kind of how their music feels too. Tranquillity and sadness aren’t things I normally seek out in electronic music, but on “Rituals” that’s exactly what I found. There still seems to be very little crossover between atmospheric dubstep, house and psychedelic electronic guitar, listening to Maribou State will make you wonder why not? Davids and Ivory previously released a string of EPs, but Portraits is their first full-length album – Stereogum
4.5/5
