Misty Shroud of Regrets is definitely a work in black and white. Nocturnal movements numbed by noisy wanderings and laid back sparse ambiences and soundscapes in equilibrium between void desolation and dreamy incantation. A whispered voice comes in to tickle a soothing nocturnal atmosphere evoked by a distant piano or a guitar that fills the heart with grey melancholy. Not really focussing on a defined line of narration, the album feels in the long run like a collection of mood containers, or standalone episodes of well exercised isolationism, each of which is pretty much autonomous from any other, with more experimental values transpiring as the work progresses.

Day Before Us new album entitled Child of a new light is now available on bandcamp. Limited edition, April 2014
“Child of a new light” is the work of Day Before Us, French and now bi-national music project whose objective has been continuously motivated by the need to create semiclassical-processed soundscapes with a special spiritual intensity. This album offers a stylistic evolution for a more visible dialectic between narratives, lyrical chants, instrumental ambient textures which seek a world of revelation linked to contemplative rituals.

A 90 minute podcast featuring deliciously dark tunes emanating from the realms of beauty and sorrow to the depths of wrath and madness
NEW SOUND EXCERPT from Day Before Us “Misty shroud of regrets” [Rage in Eden Records] | Physical copies are now available on BANDCAMP : http://daybeforeus1.bandcamp.com/music
At the distance this forthcoming album is a resolutely dark ambient neoclassical release but from a closer listening it defies the canonical schemas of genre . The musical argument reaches a synthesis and an harmonious conversation between consonant acoustic minimalism and warmly nostalgic emotional ambiences with a great sense of romanticism and experimentalism.

.::NOW AVAILABLE on AUDITORY FIELD THEORY::. Collaboration between 6&8 and Day Before Us. With Rory Mc Cormick, Jessica Peace, Philippe Blache, Francesca Parità.
Press release note: “This digital composition is a collaboration between 6&8 and Day Before Us. Ma Propre Fable, un Dimanche has a certain elegance that flutters about unhinged. A broken fable, esoteric folklore, the narrative tracks through a series of disarrayed rooms, while stuttering and circling time. Fragile connections collapse into fits of reality, as science haunts the artist and starves a dying universe.”

"Misty shroud of regrets” presents a corpus of spleen-piano based ambiences and nightly soundscaping laments for electric organ and darkened chords. The musical ensemble reveals microtonal bitter melodies occasionally punctuated by a few narrative parts, an array of noises, found sounds and field recordings. “Misty shroud of regrets” is a timeless musical effort based on the existential photographic poetry of Yulia Kazban.
