Named for Aldous Huxley's ode to pacifism, Eyeless In Gaza is the idiosyncratic duo of Martyn Bates and Peter Becker, who convened only sporadically in the '90s after releasing a flurry of records in the '80s. With a post-punk take on the troubadour's songs of courtly love, Eyeless In Gaza is one of the last successful authors of the once prolific 4AD sound -- rich in dark yet glistening production, melancholic atmospheres, elegant orchestral melodies, and romanticist flares. The duo has consistently created handsome productions of icy passages and Arabic rhythmic inventions to accompany Bates's dominant, resonant voice. The result would certainly please fans of Cindytalk or David Sylvian.
