Are you an owl or a lark? Listen to Project AER – Lark Rise #Chill #Downtempo @ProjectAER

Are you an owl or a lark? I’m a lark usually. But this morning I’m up early but struggling to stay awake. Project AER’s Lark Rise is lulling me back to bed with its downtempo charms.

Project AER is the new project for the UK’s Alex Reade who has been making music for a decade now. His current venture is described as a, “blend of ambience and guitar-driven beats.” And Lark Rise pretty much fits that description.

Lark Rise is the first single taken from forthcoming album Motions which is out in the middle of next month. It’s a two and a half minute swirl of the most exquisite chill. Opening with a slow piano line and a little tinkling anticipation it rises with the day and some wood block beats. Rosy fingered dawn is here. A guitar line comes snaking to give it the central melody to face the coming day. There are ethereal washes that keep the stresses and strains of reality at bay. Time to sneak back to bed with another cup of coffee before I face the in-box.
