– SHARE NEW VIDEO ‘FIREFLYS’
– ALBUM ‘ANALOGUE CREATURES LIVINGON AN ISLAND’ OUT NOW VIA swim~
– BRIGHTON SHOW ON JAN 28TH
With their recent LP ‘Analogue Creatures Living On An Island’ out now, instrumental ambient drone duo Immersion, made up of Wire’s Colin Newman and Minimal Compact’s Malka Spigel are sharing a new video for their recent single ‘Fireflys‘.
Directed by Brighton based animator Richard Jackson, the ‘Fireflys‘ video compliments Immersion’s sparkling synth sounds perfectly.
Malka & Colin alongside writer Graham Duff will also be curating a series of nights under the name of ‘Nanocluster”. The launch on Saturday 28th January at The Hope & Ruin, in conjunction with Triptych, will see Immersion play, alongside electronic acts Merlin Tonto & Eva Bowen. More info here.
‘Analogue Creatures Living On An Island’ is the band’s first LP in over 17 years. Between 1994 and 1998, the pair released three critically acclaimed albums of expansive electronica and their forthcoming LP adds a fourth to that collection. In the time between the last album and now, Immersion have kept themselves busy with numerous other projects, both collaboratively (Githead) and separately. The duo also relocated from London to Brighton and this move can be heard in the organic flow of the pair’s new and ever-developing songs.
‘Analogue Creatures Living On An Island’ cannot be simply categorised as ambient music, but rather, with it’s dazzling synths and magnetic electronics, the compositions can become tense and insistent, almost like a futuristic spy film, demonstrating Immersion’s skill at creating miniature worlds of sound alive with detail.
For those who prefer vinyl, the album is available spread across two 10” singles Analogue Creatures and Living On An Island respectively.
