Comment: Quimper is a project from the United Kingdom who has released nine outings since 2012. In 2017, Wake Up Gastone is the artist`s third issue. Although it is a short issue many dodges and progressions are up there for the listener's sake. It starts off with the self-titled notch being imbued with lurking and droning synths being elegantly opaque by its nature and then the 4-track outing continues with a J-pop influenced pop number (Elephant). Years Out is the most epic track where electronic devices are jettisoned for lonely piano chords and longing female vowels thereby making the listener's soul to feel herself/himself somehow scarred and sadly reflective. The final track He Woke Up is also grave and somber though it used to base on an electronic progression. It is the most atmospheric, ambient and dark wave tinged example within it. By watching the silly cover at I have to admit it seems to be eventually harmonize with the music behind it. In a word, it does not seem to be so silly at all. All In all, the result is impressive and I have to discover more music from the artist.
