Two years in the making, The New Watch are proud to unleash their second album Boundaries, a single 36min piece of dynamic sound. Shifting seamlessly from intricate technicality to soaring atmospheres, crushing heaviness to delicate melancholy, this fluid composition never loses itself within the landscapes it explores. The Night Watch are storytellers through sound and Boundaries is a powerful exploration of just how emotional instrumental music can be.
