Description

Belbury Poly - The Gone Away



Inspired by far-fetched fairy folklore, The Gone Away is the new album by Belbury Poly, the recording name of Ghost Box Records co-founder Jim Jupp. Vintage electronics, music room instrumentation and polyrhythmic sequences conjure up folk-ish, kosmiche melodies.



Evocative and unsettlingly familiar, it sets a darker and more serene tone than the last full-length Poly album, New Ways Out. Belbury Poly’s sound palette is still in evidence however; mellow analogue synths, rustic pipes and rusty strings. Gone are the usual supporting session musicians, with Jupp performing all parts himself. The album came together slowly over the course of three years while Jupp collaborated on various side projects and was finally completed a few days before the global lockdown commenced.



On digital, CD and heavyweight vinyl LP. Beautiful artwork is by Ghost Box in house designer, Julian House and the LP version comes with a free download code card.




Reviews

...this haunting, immersive album that it feels like a nod to Ghost Box's roots: where Jupp, working alone this time, is a channel for ancient, rustic strangeness, passed through the filter of some long-forgotten children's TV series.
Electronic Sound

A confirmed champion of the eerie, Jupp makes The Gone Away a kosmische one-man show of rare charm: eeriness has rarely sounded this seductive.
Shindig

A lovely album, both charming and oddly affecting.
Prog

For Belbury Poly aficionados ‘The Gone Away’ will already be essential listening, for the uninitiated it is a perfect starting point; all of Belbury’s personalities and reference points are here, presented in these beautiful vignettes.
Moof

The Gone Away is a portal too, it’s a place of wonder and imagination, where the magical can be real, and the laws of our universe no longer apply.
