Engineers have unveiled a teaser video for their new album Always Returning, which wil be released on 11th August via Kscope. The teaser contains snippets of the tracks Fight or Flight, Searched for Answers, and Always Returning and can be viewed here-
Engineers – who currently comprise Liverpudlian multi-instrumentalist Mark Peters, celebrated German ambient artist/producer Ulrich Schnauss, and London-based drummer and composer Matthew Linley – have been creating mesmerising music with brilliantly shaded guitar textures and teasing lyrical ambiguities for over ten years across three albums – 2005’s debut Engineers (‘hypnotic lullabies from beautific Brit newcomers’ **** Q), 2009’s Three Fact Fader (‘a blistering statement of intent’ **** The Sunday Times), and 2010’s swift follow-up In Praise Of More (‘should be given to most UK bands as an example of in making an album that is a joy to behold’ 8/10 Clash).
Written and recorded alone at home in York by Peters, before being coated with deft brush strokes of ambient electronica by Schnauss; Always Returning is a record that unhurriedly drifts in and out of focus, hinting at themes without ever making them so explicit that the listener can’t map out their own personal interpretations. It delivers an overall emotional heft that’s impossible to pull away from.
