Composer, bassist and producer Phil France will release his second LP, Circle, on Gondwana Records later this month.
You can get a glimpse of things to come by listening to the emotive title track below.
The Manchester-based artist is probably best known as a critical collaborator alongside Jason Swinscoe in The Cinematic Orchestra, where he co-wrote, arranged and produced on classic albums including Everyday, Man With The Movie Camera, Ma Fleur and also the triple award-winning soundtrack for The Crimson Wing nature documentary.
Five years on from his debut album The Swimmer the new project is an extension of work he began on his debut. A process he has described as: “ blocks of sound containing intricate minimal arpeggiated patterns and electronic textures that develop and shift in subtle, original and melodic ways.”
The nine-song album is released on August 31st on CD, vinyl, and digital download. Pre-order the EP here; check out the artwork and tracklist below.
