Hear a mesmerising new track from Quiet Dawn’s forthcoming EP

Human Being • The Short Story Of The Reed

French producer Quiet Dawn is set to release a new EP titled, ‘Human Being: The Short Story of The Reed’.

The six-track offering drops on February 23rd via London label First Word Records and the new project expands his talents for arranging and composing and also features a wealth of musicians for his most ambitious yet.

Each track of the EP tells a different chapter of the story. In the words of Quiet Dawn, “This record is about human behaviour; relationships, happiness, sadness, peace, anger, sex, love, birth, death… But as viewed by The Reed. The Reed is a plant that wants to be human, after observing them all around her. Over the course of the record, The Reed evolves and desires to feel feelings, gradually learning that becoming human is not so simple… .”

Today we feature The Reed, a track with sweeping strings, analogue synth-laden melodies, warming percussive where cinematic atmospherics pass by.

Sitting somewhere between the land of Bonobo and Quantic, and the cinematic library record craft of Alan Hawkshaw you won’t be able to stop at one listen.

Listen to the track below and watch the trailer above.



Human Being • The Short Story Of The Reed EP is out 23rd February on First Word Records – pre-order from Bandcamp.
