Released on June 21st – the summer solstice – Boston based producer Vru Patel returns with an album fusing a wonder of space and science with industrial, ambient and shoegaze sounds.

Previously known for his work under the guises of Knoxband and Solarein, and most recently for the ambient masterpiece “Psychosis”, Patel returns with an album of epic futuristic intent.

Depicting a journey to the sun in it’s final moments, “Solstice” showcases Patel‘s trademark ambient multi-layered arrangements but with a heavier, vocal and guitar based edge. Synthesising the influences of bands such as UNKLE, Boards of Canada, NIN, and Sigur Ros, “Solstice”  is a record of hope, and sonic and metaphysical intrigue.

Solstice” is released through Sonic Fire on June 21st as a ‘name your price’ download.
