Having tantalised audiences with ‘The Wheel’, ‘Bloodflows’, ‘Tempest’ and ‘Lessons’, SOHN has added the final touches to his debut solo album. Eagerly anticipated, Tremors will receive its release in Australia on Friday 4th April via 4AD / Remote Control.
Tremors is the way in which past traumas, as much as past successes, linger like the aftershocks of an earthquake. Even in the calmest moments its effects continue to reverberate and inform who we become. Throughout the eleven songs that form Tremors runs a sense of the nocturnal – a sensitivity to the darkness and its inhibitions – with London-born SOHN adopting a night-time schedule for an intense period of long nights writing and recording in his Vienna studio. “I wanted Tremors to feel like fresh air,”says SOHN. “There’s something about the way I was working overnight on the album which found its way into the sound. Every night I worked finished with a cold sunrise and a walk home… and to me that’s what Tremors sounds like.”
To coincide with the announcement, SOHN has released a video for album track and forthcoming single ‘Artifice‘. Arguably the melodic heart of Tremors, the song was given its debut airing by Zane Lowe who named ‘Artifice’ his Hottest Record In The World on his BBC Radio 1 show. Watch its accompanying video, directed by Thom Glunt, here.
Remote Control and 4AD are proud to announce that LA based producer Lo-Fang(nee Matthew Hemerlein)will release his debut album Blue Film on February 21st 2014.
Classically trained in violin, cello, bass, piano and guitar, Hemerlein’s soulful falsetto floats above a rich blend of classical, R&B and electronic music, telling stories of love, loss, and deceit. The album was written and recorded during Hemerlein’s world travels everywhere from a farmhouse in Maryland to a hotel in Cambodia to studios in London and Nashville. He completed the album at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles with GRAMMY Award winning producer Francois Tetaz (Gotye, Kimbra, Architecture In Helsinki).
Noted filmmaker Grant Singer (Sky Ferreira, Kendrick Lamar, DIIV) directed the stunning two-part video for album track “Look Away” that premiered overnight via VEVO. The first half nodding to the op-art movement with the second half filmed in an abandoned mansion in the Hollywood Hills where Spielberg once shot scenes from Colombo.
Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, ‘Amsterdam’ offers an intimate glimpse of the trio behind the scenes when they performed at Festival No.6, set in the picturesque coastal resort of Portmeirion, North Wales.
Using four tracks from Zomby’s forthcoming album, With Love, London based director Ollie Evans has created a tableau vivant-inspired short to preview the new record. Filmed in monochrome and slow motion, Evans takes excerpts from ‘Ascension’, ‘Sunshine in November’, ‘Overdose’ and ‘Memories’ to portray a movement through life and death.
With Love is released via 4AD / Remote Control on double CD and triple vinyl, Friday 14th June.
