The British experimentalist has also released European tour dates for 2021
Experimental composer Leifur James has announced an upcoming EP, ‘The Year Turns To Air’, with the release of its lead single ‘Sirens’.
The EP is set to drop on November 24th via Late Night Tales’ sister label Night Time Stories.
After the launch of his first two albums and notable live performances at the likes of Barbican Hall and Southbank Centre, James’ latest material is enchanting and unique.
Inspiration for the upcoming record came from the Neolithic stone circle at Avebury, UK, not far from the home of the artist’s father and where James spent much of the past year. Nature and the surrounding prehistoric landscapes influenced James throughout the composition process.
According to promotional material, the EP is a “dense and emotive new offering wrought with organic sound design and accomplished instrumentation”. ‘Sirens’ “waxes and wanes in James’ characteristic style before opening up into a rousing and energetic piece of left-field techno music.”
James has also announced a new European tour starting this month, which features stops at AB in Brussels, London’s Village Underground, and Melkweg, Amsterdam.
