Short version: Immerse yourself in the stunning atmosphere of Belanov. Soundscapes are built up in subtle control and supported by functional and well-dosed vocals. Belanov's music is suited to finalize your day, but those who can't wait may enjoy Paragraph earlier in the day. Extended version: Paragraph, the first full Belanov album, is suited to finalize your day. Time for musing, seduced by the warm epic shade. Soundscapes are built up in subtle control, and before you know you are immersed in the stunning atmosphere of Belanov. Silent, almost unnoticeable passages transform in a tempest of guitar noise, supported by functional and well-dosed vocals. Sometimes rough, dark and thrilling, then again melancholic and narrative. Paragraph acts on the outer limits of composed tension. Between the compact After a Downpour and the epic final track Night Season you will oscillate between loud and soft, between dark and light, between control and explosion. Like an aeroplane that positions itself on the runway: dynamics develop, speed increases, and then all of a sudden the redeeming glide sets in. Psychoacoustic effects and striking one-liners will help you through the night. Those who can't wait, may enjoy Paragraph earlier in the day. Biography Belanov Belanov was founded in the late the nineties. The band attracted attention with their contribution to the compilation album Fabulous Racers from Dutch label Zabel Muziek in 2001. After a few years of silence Belanov returned by the end of 2004 in it's current formation, resulting in the four track EP We Left on the Third Day in 2007. Earlier this year the first full length debut album Paragraph was recorded at the Eindhoven Void Studios, produced by Pieter Kloos. The sound of Belanov is best described as atmospheric and extensive, enriched with functional vocals and carefully controlled dynamics. Belanov tends to be stubborn, not as a means to and end, but originating as a logical consequence from the mix of musical influences brought together by the individual members of the band: from post rock to new wave, pop and punk. Eventually the sound of Belanov is meant to throw the listener into ecstasies, both on the album as well as to a live audience.
