Previously known for his progressive trance works, van Wyk has spent a lot of his time as of late composing for the film industry.

In 2013, his solo output switched to more pastoral forms of neo-classical leaning ambient with his first full-length Days You Remember, before moving into more piano-based composition for Attachment (2016) and Opacity (2017).

Threads does reflect some of his previous ambient works; however, the album shows van Wyk composing music for (and of) current times.

There is a much-welcomed underlying beauty to Threads, but there are also threads of anxious- ness and unwavering intensity throughout its forty-minute run-time.

It's an engaging listen full of texture where each piece takes you on an engrossingly escapist journey.
