Late Night Final Shares New Visualiser For Album Track “Slow Release” – Taken From Album “A Wonderful Hope” Out Now Via PIAS

Late Night Final, the new side project from Public Service Broadcasting’s J. Willgoose, has unveiled a new visualizer for the track “Slow Release” taken from the debut album, A Wonderful Hope, which is out now and was released 11th December 2020 via PIAS.

Slow Release, the album closer, is a remarkable 11 minute exploration. The composition provides this escapism during the cosmic creations time frame. Another complex yet vast soundscape created by this vital artist. The depth of this arrangement will blow you away, the consuming notes and various elements intertwining in the ethereal environment become such a vital mix. Once again a movement that engulfs the listener and transports them into the middle of this creative world crafted by Late Night Final.

Written during the 2020 lockdown, the album was born out of a deep rooted yearning to connect with other humans and a need to do something creative and regain some sense of control. “We were working on the next Public Service Broadcasting album when the restrictions hit,” says Willgoose. “All of our equipment was stuck in a different country and we were unable to meet up. I’ve always wanted to explore a more meditative sound, inspired by Brian Eno, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and KLF’s seminal ‘Chill Out’ album. This felt like the perfect opportunity.” 

The 45 minutes of music that grew out of his lockdown reflect the make-do-and-mend attitude of the period: listen out for the distorted sound of his baby’s metal rattle played backwards on track two and samples from his local park on the fourth and final track. Willgoose also explores theories of random music generation as well as the human capacity for hope. 

“We will find our way back to a world in which live music will happen again. But I’m less optimistic in person than I am on record. Music allows me to express hopes I find difficult to acknowledge in everyday life. I made this whole album picturing a dance tent at 4am or a room late at night, full of people, movement and warmth and all the joy that that can bring. It feels like I was sending signals out into space.”
