about

“Infinite Regress” is a rare song based solo outing from prolific collaborator, bassist and composer Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree/Metallic Taste of Blood/Twinscapes/O.R.k. etc) 

Reflecting on the inaccuracies of both collective and personal memories and an enduring fascination with the subconscious and its imagery, Colin Edwin joined up with longtime friend, vocalist and lyricist RJ Peck to explore themes of urban alienation, technological distraction, memory and forgetfulness.
With a nod to the bass heavy, ambient electronica infused territory somewhere between New Order and Massive Attack, “Infinite Regress” is a collection of ten intuitive and visceral songs with a definite nocturnal, midnight to dawn ambience.
Highlights include the plaintive and catchy “Demission” where an insistent, propulsive and overly simplistic one note bassline underpins an incongruously cheery lament to the inescapable claustrophobia of everyday life, and the pleasantly disorientating and abstract “Floatograph” which asks the perennial question “Are You Real?”
With its reversed melodic form, closing track “Under the Lens” evokes the grainy nostalgic air of a long lost photograph taken from a receding, ever distancing point of view.
