The Deer Tracks, The Archer Trilogy Pt. 2 Album Review


Writing and recording out of a frosty corner of Sweden, The Deer Tracks - Elin Lindfors and David Lehnberg - have drawn upon all kinds of influences to create their own, wholly undefinable, world. Vast soundscapes are created with the aid of gentle waves of synth, and drops of delicate piano fall from gathering storm clouds, and then the entire world shatters and collapses into a tiny strobe-lit room, and everybody's dancing. Ambience trades blows with Electronica, a string quartet plays in the background. A firebomb of distortion suddenly obliterates everything, and the lines that separate one genre from another don't exist any more. I sincerely apologise for the barrage of metaphor, but that's just what listening to The Deer Tracks is like. You can't describe them without being as utterly removed from reality as they are. I'm fairly certain that there's another planet somewhere, on which Bjork and Sigur Ros live next door to each other, and The Deer Tracks come over every other day for tea and unnecessarily colourful cupcakes, while everyone wears weird woolly hats.

The duo has released three albums to date, two of which - Prologue and The Archer Trilogy Pt. 1 - are a part of The Archer Trilogy. This trilogy (which should really be called a tetralogy, on account of its four parts, but nobody knows what a tetralogy is) is essentially four albums released in quick succession. The first two instalments of the trilogy were released within a week of each other, back in March, and the final part is due to be recorded in the autumn. I can't see any obvious thematic link between the albums apart from the fact that they all have The Archer Trilogy in the title, but it's an admirable feat nonetheless.
