Panic Of Looking
New EP Released November 7th on Warp Records
Stream Title Track Now

From the recordings that produced Drums Between the Bells – the acclaimed collaboration between Brian Eno and poet Rick Holland – comes an all new EP titled Panic Of Looking. The 6 tracks continue the exploration of how lyric & song-writing are perceived in the post-everything era. As the Sunday Times Culture suggests, “The poems aren’t sung, yet the pieces are undeniably songlike, first because the music refuses to act simply as background, but lurches frequently, sometimes unexpected to the fore, and second because we hear the meaning of the words in the way we normally pick up song lyrics… ” while Uncut Magazine describes Eno’s soundscapes, “It is set against treated vocal renditions of Rick Holland’s lyrics which pain meticulous and surreal pictures and set verbal juxtapositions that sit nicely with Eno’s music, which itself blurs the line between chance and strategy”. All of these elements come together for the November 7th release of the EP, which was produced by Eno and features his original artwork on vinyl, CD & digital formats.
