Recorded and mixed by Yannick Tournier and Julien Costa

Silent Whale Becomes A° Dream’s debut album “Canopy” is an unforgettable and awe-inspiring instrumental rock masterpiece of majestic depth consisting of four long atmospheric tracks fuelled by orchestral expansiveness, soaring guitars and intense melodies that induce powerful emotions and a dreamlike state at every listen.
“Canopy” is an astoundingly disarming debut release from a band that immediately displayed remarkable cohesion in their compositions and a natural ability to tug at one’s heartstrings. The arrangements emphasize texture, structure and pacing. The lush cinematic strings are constantly enveloping and come to life with mystical grandeur. Yannick Tournier’s pristine production only further empowers the high-reaching capabilities of this imposing band that truly lives up to their name. “Canopy” is a towering triumph born out of ambition, emotions and mesmerising mastery. It is a larger than life post-rock symphony for the ages.

Des disques dont la beauté aide à faire jaillir puis à apaiser les larmes, et à mettre du baume sur les coeurs meurtris. Une merveille de post-rock orchestral onirique et de toute beauté. Les quatre titres de « Canopy » s’écoutent comme une longue et belle symphonie. Longues nappes mélodiques à la fois atmosphériques et intenses, ils ont ce pouvoir de déployer de riches et puissantes émotions à chaque écoute, sans lassitude et sans ennui. Ici, les guitares scintillent et résonnent, les violons déroulent leurs longues plaintes tandis que les percussions font s’envoler le tout dans une profondeur majestueuse. Intense, émouvant et élégant, cet album est de toute beauté. A écouter et réécouter encore et encore.

One of the most extraordinary bands of all-time. Listen to their astonishing album "Canopy" so you can understand why we are unable to conceal our euphoria right now. "Canopy" is a MASTERPIECE and easily some of the most awesome, emotion-filled post-rock ever recorded.
