Sounds that Escaped is Mikael Lind's fourth full-length album, and it is a continuation of the style that can be heard on his 2016 EP Intentions and Variations. In other words, the exploration of "textures, moods and sonic soundscapes" - as described by Anton Jackson from Vulture Hound Magazine - is taken a step further here. Simple themes evolve slowly, grow into more complex entities, transmute into something different, until they either repeat themselves in a different shape, or make way for new themes. The palette of sound ranges from subtle, gentle piano harmonies to growling, slightly threatening distortions, and it is the unevenness that surrounds many textures that makes them captivating. A fitting analogy might be the subtle charm that emerges when a beautiful tune is played through an old, crackly cassette deck.

"Calamitous tidings unfold as tiny actions seem to become hugely amplified, its sweetness and quasi-stability threatened by a breeze of lo-fi detunings that surge across its surface and shake the delicate physics of the scene as we struggle to keep up with the capture of it all."
