Electronic duo LV and Joshua Idehen have shared details of a new album, titled ‘Ends’.
The album is preceded by the lead single and the first track Idehen wrote for the album, ‘Ancestors’ which sets the tone of the album and sees Joshua Idehen at his most Mike Skinner – “Naija by way of The Streets” – and underlines his gift for witty wordplay: he’s a “Modern-day Keats writing sad songs in Yeats,” he says, “Full English on my plate / I’m long, not late, mate”
‘Ends’, a press release explains, “takes its steps from their critically acclaimed debut LP ‘Routes’, picking up the inner-city thread but finding the three musicians weaving through a metropolis in turmoil, a post-Brexit landscape where nationalism and anti-immigrant sentiment are on the rise.”
The record comes a decade on from her debut full-length project, the critically acclaimed ‘Routes’ in 2011. This is a brilliant return from a collaboration that we’ve missed dearly – can’t wait for the album!
