"The strong compositional skills of Zach come to the fore in a release... which leaves the listener engrossed in the evolving orchestration." - Tim Whale / EmergingIndieBands.com

After a growing interest in ambient music, Zach Heyde set out to create his debut ambient album, Spectral. Drawing inspiration from artists like Olafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, and Brian Eno, Heyde composed 6 tracks filled with fragile melodies, spacey electronics and lush soundscapes. Each track in some way embraces imperfection—the off-kilter keyboard delays on “Hollow", the hisses and pops of an old record player on “Module 13”, or the prominent creaking of an aged piano on “Still”. Yet these imperfections, scattered through Heyde’s 25-minute EP, bring a sense of intimacy and charm that warm each track and welcome repeated listens.

Track Name: Dissipate (feat. Laura Anglade)
You're in my shadow (x2)
Erasing me, erasing you
You're in thoughtless conversations
Collapsing into our surroundings

Oh, what a wonderful world
What a colorful world we're in
Shaping our every outline
Is it real or just a feeling? (x7)
