Winter Flags

Taken from my favourite release of 2013, ‘Winter Flags‘ is the kind of track that would fit seamlessly into the soundtrack of a Sofia Coppola film. Winter Flags is the side project of Tbilisi, Georgia native Gacha Bakradze. Gacha‘s penchant for creating forward-thinking, emotive ambient music is plain for all to hear on his debut Winter Flags release. The seven-track debut is a masterclass in ambient electronic music. The EP is available via Dado Records.
