Children Of The Stones is a new project from Mark Van Hoen (most notably from Locust) and vocalist Martin Maeers. “The Stars & Silence” is the lead track from an eponymous EP. Dotted by synth strings and Maeers resigned vocals, this new single is beguilingly hypnotic.
The EP also features two remixes of “The Stars & Silence,” and the effective b/side “Your Storm.” The two remaining tracks, “Guiding Light” and “Saudade” are remnants from past Van Hoen projects with Locust and Martin Maeers (in 1992), respectively. More recordings from those long ago sessions between Van Hoen and Maeers will be released on the next Children of the Stones EP.
