Orbis showcases several of Shock of Daylight's signatures, with a sweeping guitar sample at the heart of an organically unfolding structure of sound.
Shock of Daylight is the music of Scottish-born-London-based multi-instrumentalist Danny Currie, whose work as a guitarist and producer has been featured on BBC 6 Music, as well as many internet radio stations over the past 2 years.
Described by Nugazer as ‘Somewhere between the ambient shoegaze of Ulrich Schnauss and F*ck Buttons’ darker menace’, Shock of Daylight weaves organic and electric noise, stripped-back motorik percussion and processed samples into looping, minimalist structures, influenced as much by modern classical greats like Philip Glass and Steve Reich, as by contemporary and early electronica.

“Immense instrumental shoegaze…electronica at its finest” - Primal Music
“Somewhere between the ambient shoegaze of Ulrich Schnauss and Fuck Buttons’ darker menace, debut EP Deep Sea Breath is a collection of fuzzy edged instrumentals that absorb and delight in equal measure.” - Nugazer
