Since friday I have been listening a lot to Fervent Mind. A very versatile band from Norway with elements of post rock and little bits of metal in some places. I was happy to have discovered them. With every new listen I enjoy it more and more!
Today, on Progwereld, I read a review about their album (which is called "Tranquilize") and they are pretty positive already. But in my opinion Progwereld is even holding back a bit. I think this is a really good album! And it could appeal to many people.

Progwereld says it sounds like Massive Attack, Frequency Drift and Lesoir. I want to add to that and mention bands like Lunatic Soul for the ambient bits, Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson for the more proggy and metal bits. But there's some good bit of pop music sensibilities in it as well, because there are many hooks in this music.

A recommendation from me.

I'll give it a try, though the influences that you mention are not really my cup of tea ::). Lesoir was the support act at the Riverside gig :).

Actually, I won't really know about Massive Attack, Frequency Drift and Lesoir, because I don't know them (that well). But if they do sound like Fervent Mind, I might check them out! ;D

I really hear Lunatic Soul in this. And Steven Wilson indeed. But now that you mention it, there could be a bit of Bruce Soord/Pineapple Thief in it too.
(Just trying to win you over of course)

Anyway, I listen a lot to Fervent Mind these days. And I'm liking it sooooo much. I'm sure they will end up in my 2019 list somewhere.
And there is this other band: Fleesh, that I begin to like just as much. Both bands are fronted by a woman. I'm normally not very much into female vocals, but for some reason it really does the trick this time.


Another band I'd like to mention is Now In Colours. They're from Australia and I think they're really good! They remind me of a less heavy Haken. It's a bit like how Agent Fresco sounded somewhat like Leprous. Now In Colours sounds somewhat like Haken. Mostly because of the vocalist I think, I don't know.
The only drawback is the production. It sounds a bit compressed on Spotify and Bandcamp and the other digital formats. I hope it's better on an actual cd. I'd really like to try!

:D  I'll have a listen and will let you know. I do prefer male vocals as well, but there are exceptions indeed ;). This evening just male vocals:

Ascending From Ashes - "Glory"

Wow! What a cool band! Pretty heavy (even some harsh vocals here and there) but verrrrrrry melodic stuff. Reminds me a tiny little bit of Leprous. But they also give me a Dear Hunter vibe in some way.
Check it out guys!
