Time once more for some free chill music!
Heivard is a new artist from Hong Kong, who experiments with the sounds of ambient, trip-hop, nu-gaze and some illbient. He/She has released a few free albums online and Flows is released on Fwonk* Netlabel this year.
Flows is a very quiet and calm EP with some nice drums and flowing, sweeping melodies. There are some hints of glitch, but nothing overpowering which clashes with the trippy atmosphere Heivard creates. The blend of the trip-hop/IDM drums and the calm landscapes of ambient blends nicely and it feels organic and not pasted on.
The album succeeds with what it set out to create and make for a nice chill out album on a rainy night, just don’t expect something to blow your mind. Definitely download it!
Very nice cover by the way!
