Tryst Arcane should already conjure up an air of mystique, but venture into the musical world that this duo has been creating behind closed doors, and the darkness looms even deeper. Simple in structure, the songs are deliberately shorn of any conventional percussive arrangements. Instead, their rhythms fluidly emanate from an esoteric rendezvous of sweeping organ sounds, brooding piano riffs and soaring vocal melodies adorned with lyrics inspired by emotive personal experiences. At times reminiscent of sacred hymnal music yet also venturing into romantic balladry. Tryst Arcane's music has at its core a self-styled undertow of poignancy that gives it its unique edge.
