Bruges offer up 7 new tracks on their latest record, A Thread of Light. The band find themselves harnessing the power of repetition to their advantage building a tension throughout the listen that rarely lets up. At times that tension comes to lush breath in the song "Translucent" as the band builds to a dream-like soundscape. This catching of breath only lasts a moment as the track "Not Here" follows with a bludgeoning racket of sludgy noise rock. This balance of rhythmic tension is a constant throughout the record which comes to a harrowing halt at the end, where Bruges find the ultimate distillation of their sound in "A Range of Light".
