Robin Guthrie - Pearldiving

Pearldiving by Robin Guthrie

Dreamy escapism, unashamedly MOR

Cocteau Twins guitarist Robin Guthrie with a new instrumental album, his first since 2012's Fortune, created while dealing with enforced isolation (due to Covid) and the death of close friend Harold Budd. In a nutshell, it's dreamy escapism and unashamedly MOR. The music swells and sighs as your tensions ease. Reverbed guitars and sustained piano chords combine in yearning, twinkling melodies that encourage a more mindful listening experience. Simply delightful.
