Yawning Abyss is the New Zealand music project of M Francis McCarthy and friends.
Our music is dreamy, pop like, tinged with electronic sounds and organic textures. Inspired by the love, sex, death and the abyss...
Our latest disk is Lost Horizon. Over a year in the making and guaranteed to obviate the crass edges of this so called reality...
Lost Horizon is our first album in over 5 years to feature vocal tracks like these:
I really enjoyed getting the mike out again these are some of the best songs I've done in the ten years I've been a composer and producer. The album can be downloaded here feel free to pay something if you enjoy the record.
The second offering from the Yawning Abyss is our LP in abyssm. The quixotic, psychic fruitation of six months entanglement on this mortal coil. Dive in here.
Also, please enjoy "Fortress of Indifference". A full length recording containing tracks composed and performed in Northland New Zealand from 2010 too 2012. It's a swirling astral orgasm.
Previously, M Francis McCarthy was involved with the band "the theory of one". The theory of one was a project lasting from 2003 to 2009 and produced seven albums. Check them out here.
