is the moniker of London-based songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Neil Curtis. After gaining the attention of big music blogs and playlists with three excellent singles, the artist is releasing his debut album August in Winter
The record's first single is First Exit,
a rich layered tune with ghostly vocal samples, field-recorded ambience and tape hiss similar to Burial's. These elements are combined with unsquare percussive patterns, lonely and rainy harmonies and beautiful counterpoint melodies. The track has a lot going on, but it all happens so organically that you discover more and more details only after repeated listens.
