STRFKR may have released Future Past Life only a few months ago, but now, they are back with Ambient 1. Arriving via Polyvinyl Records, Ambient 1 came into fruition soon after the completion of Future Past Life, when songwriter Josh Hodges found himself listening to ambient and minimal composers. Around that time, Hodges acquired a cache of new age cassettes at an estate sale and spent time experimenting with a Prophet 5 synthesizer. Then, the pandemic came, and Hodges began working through his experiences and emotions by experimenting with ambient music. Music began to flow, and an album reminiscent of Harold Budd and Brian Eno took form. The end result is Ambient 1.
Ambient 1 is out now.
