Blanket Swimming is an experimental/sound artist based out of Jackson, MS.
Open Colour is a study in form, texture, flow, and repetition.
"Blanket Swimming has the rare talent of straddling both melancholy drones and uplifting melodies which is honed even further on the release, Open Colour. The album’s opening track features a pulsing bed of sound slowly morphing into anxious synths through the track’s two-minute run time. As Open Colour progresses, Blanket Swimming conjures melodic soundscapes exercising the construction/ destruction of stereo drones with found sounds and ethereal vocal loops striking lasting emotional impressions. Nick’s use of field recordings in harmony with instrumental sections results in a dreamlike tug-of-war with the listener’s ears. Open Colour’s masterful closer breathes a sum of emotions found in one thoroughly composed eight-minute track. Blanket Swimming’s control over soundwaves resonates emotionally and subconsciously throughout Open Colour. I have a feeling each revisit of Open Colour will yield a new discovery."

Lovely and spacious sounds balanced with a disquieting atmosphere. An excellent suite that uses ambient music not just to calm the listener, but to transport them into an epic, sweeping storm. Alec L. Critten
