Written and recorded between 2013 and 2016 in San Diego, CA and Brooklyn, NY. Guitars were recorded in Savaria Studios in Brooklyn, NY.
A Passive Bludgeoning Force is a combination of guitars, processed guitars, and synths.
"Positioning itself between post rock and ambient, Floor Overhead‘s majestic A Passive Bludgeoning Force presents deconstructed guitar work that is epic in scope yet maintains its calm; evoking the wide expanses of nature. Think Sigur Rós crossed with Russian Circles, or Ben Frost mixed with Fennesz. An assertive, accessible listen, Force induces a soothing aura across the album’s four principal tracks (the fifth track is a minute and a half long coda). Throughout, Andrew Farwell’s heavily processed timbres are given a floating sense of ambiguity, while the occasional use of distortion adds a dash of grit." -- Tristan Kneschke, Echoes and Dust
