Music From Memory
Although their methodology remained the same, the inspirations were different. Whereas “Clouds” was intimate by design, “The Distance” reflects more on spaciousness, distance and time. It is instantly recognizable as a Gaussian Curve record, but feels different in scope and tone.
“The Distance” is a different musical beast to its’ predecessor, but shares the same timeless, emotion-rich feel that made “Clouds” such a hit. While the fundamental ingredients remain the same – Masin’s masterly piano and synthesizer work, Nash’s blissful, meandering guitar lines, and Sterk’s synths, drum machines and production – “The Distance” is an album brimming with fresh ideas, and more complex musical arrangements. It’s the sound of three confident collaborators crafting magical musical moments in their own unique way.
