2016’s “Presence” is the second full-length album by Letters of Utrecht. Key influences this time include surf, psychedelic and ambient/drone/noise music, as well as the work of Lynch, Badalamenti and Morricone.

Music written and recorded by Allan Buchanan Aug- Dec 2015.

Dedicated to B,C & D


"In the forty minutes Presence exists, the composition balances the contribution of droned out melodies to perfect weights. Notes seem to hover in the air, suspended by deft skills. Letters of Utrecht explores the aural world with beautiful patience."

LOST IN A SEA OF SOUND

"When you think you have this pegged as a collection of sad songs, the guitar comes in and kind of throws everything off in your preconceived notions. It just expands into something else and it becomes rather beautiful. I've heard these types of sounds separately before but never pieced together quite like this before."

RAISED BY GYPSIES

"A finely wrought piece of work… from ambient and drone to post-rock with doomish touches… a diverse record that never loses your attention, at least partly because it's so damn tense."
