Stereocilia is back with his 4th album, and second for Drone Rock Records, ‘The Silence That Follows’. Following on from 2017’s sellout album, ’Hive Mind’, Stereocilia is once again pushing the boundaries of cinematic soundscapes and psych drone. ’The Silence That Follows’ is built upon a bedrock of processed sounds, heavy synths and layered guitars, which fill the stereo spectrum, and as such is an album you can immerse yourself in and be taken away on a journey.
“…it brings remeniscence of something familiar yet slightly out of grasp, like warped super 8 clips of good times past. Close your eyes and let the soothing sounds guide you. Stereocilias’ canvas is your universe, the painting is your soul.”
“a dense, hybrid ambient mess of nothingness which pulls you into its void and encompasses your very being…. a true cathartic experience which turns into a beautiful cinematic sound-scape.”

Beginning to sound more 'produced' now,I think...production values rise with experience ("tradecraft", as Le Carre called it) but the band has yet more 'edge' and confidence...this is mature work and it feels like they are discovering their true identity and potential...the extended jam feel of some earlier music now seems a little more purposeful and focused...that's great,because there feels like so much more to come from DSA in the future and all the hard work is paying off...
