In this electronic shoegaze album, a Genoa based post-rock band explores everything from glitchy beats to ambient vocal overlays. Currently consisting of five members, Port-Royal is a band that has rotated various members throughout the years, yet managed to keep a consistent sound. Listening to Afraid To Dance, one can soak in the sense of loneliness and a desire to wander through an early morning fog only to get lost among the oldest Italian streets. The music of Port-Royal incorporates carefully synthesized pads, dreamy space-rock guitars, and at times, distorted, solid beats, with arrangements swirling among transparent boundaries of one's mind, combining the ethers with oxygen, only to leave a slight trace of memory on the surface. Port-Royal is at the forefront of the movement that bridges the multiple modern genres together into an amalgam of what we can proudly call music.
