Secret Lake by Eric Angelo Bessel

Darkenin Heart

Eric Angelo Bessel is a musician and visual artist, and one half of the experimental band Lore City, together with wife Laura Mariposa Williams. After four albums and one EP with Lore City, Bessel prepares for the release of his debut solo full length, Visitation, releasing on April 21st, 2023. It is also the fourth release under the Lore City Music imprint.

The first taste from Visitation is Secret Lake, a somber and ominous track with an atmosphere that suggests something imposing and storytelling.

Bessel comments on the new track: “Secret Lake’s marshy voyage reveals a lo-fi chamber orchestra and choir before slinking beneath the lily pads.

The statement for the entire release paints a pretty vivid picture as well. Bessel writes: "Looking up from underneath, there is a watery peace. A settling as the light sifts downward, refracting the sights above, now wavering into pieces of the world as it was. An accordion of a sigh releasing its weight forever. Little snow globes of living. A tin soldier army marches towards us from an unknown distance. Someday their armory will glint in the sun upon the hill, but it is not today. And the expanse is staged. Hands arbitrarily moving about in space. To grasp, to reach for atoms nodding, agreeing to be solidity. To suspend the vibration of being. A nostalgia just out of reach. Wrapped with blankets in the other room, salt lamp glowing, a little less red. To think we could ever look back on these times with such favor. A kindness, bending nearer."
