From serene beginnings to elated peaks, "Decadence', the second part of Tomonari Nozaki's trilogy of new EP's for forwind, ups the intensity with a masterclass of noisy ambience and beautiful grit.
Decadence is a perfect example of how Tomonari’s sound has developed into something more cohesive with his ever improving mastery of detail, texture and the parts he weaves together.
The two new mini-opus's utilise elements of ambient, concrète rhythm and shoegaze dissolve to stunning effect in his next pairing of contrasting but complimentary compositions. They're another wonderful example of Tomonari's talent at producing music that can appeal to fans of a wide array of genres yet arrive somewhere unique, outside of them all.

I can't put into words how it feels to listen to this album. The sensation of increasing anxiety and dread throughout the stages is unique. It makes me want to keep listening and theorizing about what's happening in the songs, especially in the post-awareness stages. D0DGAMES
I feel and see strong visuals when listening to Falling Into The Sea. They are relative to the title. I see grainy black and white video. I see repetition. I see the sweeping ocean water. To me, a chord within me is struck as there is extreme melancholy and depth to these tracks, especially "..Sea". Portis
