Giron is the more intimate side of Tomas Fernandez Giron, a Spanish multi-instrumentalist and composer with a long musical career, who has been touring around Europe, South and North America during the last several years as a bass player. Giron reflects the most space, ambient and psychedelic influences of bands from the Seventies such as Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream, Cluster, Klaus Schulze, Ash Ra and Tim Blake. While Giron's debut album from 2014, "Forest", encompasses elements from the above mentioned artists, there's a darker, melancholic sound drifting through this work, especially due to many sparse moments of lonely despondent piano, but there's sudden outbursts of real joy and playfulness as well. It contains lengthy Berlin School atmospheres, creeping sequencer patterns, distortion, brief tasteful dance beats and rising and falling whirring synth washes, but avoids the "cosmic" cliches that are often found on these albums, and best of all, the low-key production gives it a very fragile, beautiful quality. Giron and his album "Forest" are both highly recommended!
