Esencia is proud to present Forgotten Ones, the new album from London based quintet Culross Close. The album opens with ‘Fractured’, a cosmic musing carried delicately by electric piano and decorated with a synthesized dalliance. The album then cruises into ‘Forgotten Ones’, a spiritual made potent by their choral-esque vocals by far their most accomplished piece to date.

‘Acceptance’ finds the quintet in familiar hip-hop territory, carving out a top tier groove with a recurring piano motif of the highest order. Their vocals, this time more chant than choral makes for a brilliant 5-minute mantra.

‘Mood’ is a stark contrast to anything else on the album, an acidic and rugged illustration of the group’s present state. ‘The Tiniest Lights Still Shine’ is a syncopated excursion in 5/4 time. With an electrifying percussion solo, this will be the song that finds its way onto the dance-floor. ‘Healing’ is a percussion heavy journey, draped in synthesizers and style, embodying elements of 70’s fusion and bossa-nova, a perfect closer to the album.
