NEW RELEASE: Gemini Sun by Salook


released 28 May 2014

Gemini Sun is a collection of uniquely Salook-styled experimental tracks. The album is full of intense atmospheres which you may find strangely peaceful at times. The layering and textures infuscated with wild
percussions and glitch breaks accompany the listener to the outer
limits…spooky in the best sense.

“I measured the skies, now the shadows I measure
Skybound was the mind, earthbound the body rests”
