Llarks is back with his third album on Tape Lamour!
Recorded throughout 2018 these songs represent Llark’s music at it’s most beautiful. From the opening swirl of “Imagine”, the grand melodies of the title track, and the searing heartbroken guitar line of “Ghost Lake Acrobat”, Come and Close Your Eyes establishes itself as a simply gorgeous and heartfelt album. The atmosphere continues with the immaculate roar of the aptly titled “Squallflowers”, and the delicate chime of the equally apt title “Lullachime”. By the time the final drone of “Virga Blue” fades we hope you will be reminded that all forms of music can be a steadfast hope in the face of challenge.
Llarks is the ambient/drone project by guitarist & computer musician c.jeely. His music uses guitar, laptop & tape manipulation to create multilayered melodic compositions.
C has been actively releasing music since 1995 under previous projects Accelera Deck, September Plateau, The Trust Riots and more…

REVIEWS and ARTICLES
“The trademark sound of Llarks, the shoegazing side of ambient music, is present in these pieces and the interesting is that it doesn’t matter if Llarks plays a very moody piece, ‘Ghost Lake Acrobat’ for instance or a very upfront one, ‘Squallflowers’ it is always there, shimmering in the quieter ones and also screaming in the louder pieces, with the one I mentioned being the most extreme. Another excellent tape.”
