Colbets is a duo from Tokyo, Japan consisting of Saitoh Tomohiro and Kari Takemoto. They have previously released music on labels such as Twice Removed, Twisted Treeline, U-Cover and Vent in a project that began in 2011.
Saitoh also records solo electronic material as Shreber Harber Mole Flying Wheel whilst Kari is a guitarist; together they produce dense and hazy linear drones.

Come To The Surface was composed as the soundtrack to an imaginary nostalgic movie, designed to evoke thoughts of flickering, grainy film imagery. The entire album is an immersive listen from start to finish, designed with Brian Eno's original description of Ambient music in mind: to be neither foreground nor background. There is a weight and power to the contemplative sound palette that will pull you into thoughts of nostalgia as you try to recall abandoned memories to the surface of your mind.
