Released: 7th April 2012
TL;DR: Hauntingly good.
Noctilucence is the debut EP from David Peck. The musician from Indianapolis, Indiana has produced a fantastic listen here, and to think it’s his first ever release into the bottomless pit that is the music industry makes it sound ever better. The title, which means “to shine in the dark” certainly achieves that. Its mixture of haunting electronic noises and bright organic recordings help create some incredible electronic atmospheres.
While being dark and haunting in most places, Noctilucence still manages to retain a lot of catchy and accessible moments in its material, possibly being the tool used to help David Peck’s music to shine in the dark. It’s difficult to relate to these atmospheres, yet it’s easy to feel at home in them. The production quality is top notch which makes this EP shine even more, and also makes it even more impressive considering David Peck did this himself.
So yeah. Noctilucence is an absolutely fantastic listen, full of great moments that can be enjoyed over and over again. This is easily one of the best EPs of the year for sure, and I cannot wait to hear more material from David Peck.
