LCY has announced a new EP.
London based producer, DJ and visual artist LCY, who dropped their first official single, ‘Garden of E10’, via their own SZNS7N label in December last year, has announced a six-track EP titled 'Pulling Teeth'.
The new EP will journey further into LCY's dystopian world and the life of Ériu — the central character of LCY's sonic storytelling — and is inspired by traditional Irish lore, fantasy soundtracks and the books of Mary Shelley.
Speaking about release, LCY said: “‘Pulling Teeth’ is my first completely non-fiction project and experience with world building after envisioning and drawing what would be the main character nearly 2 years ago. The story follows a post-human, post-human friendly AI landscape where the robots known as ‘the organism’ build a robot with a human brain (and accidentally a canine mouth) to in part worship and in part experiment on.
"The story expands throughout the project, and everything down to the tiniest of frequencies has been built with the intention of immersing the listener.
"Through the process of creation, writing and drawing this story into a graphic novel it has become not only a reflection on the character Eriù but drawn inspiration from my own research of Celtic folklore and reflection of myself and the situations/people around me. This is the first look at this world and it's complex dynamics, I would like for people to take what they will of the music and build their own ideas of what it means."
'Pulling Teeth' will be released via SZNS7N on the 22nd April, and will come accompanied by a clay model image series and a forthcoming live audio piece. Pre-order/pre-save the EP here, and check out 'shhh' below.
