• From the recordings that produced ‘Drums Between The Bells’, the acclaimed collaboration between Brian Eno and poet Rick Holland, comes an all new EP titled ‘Panic Of Looking’.
• The 6 tracks continue the exploration of how lyric and songwriting are perceived in the post-everything era. As the Sunday Times suggests, “The poems aren’t sung, yet the pieces are undeniably songlike, first because the music refuses to act simply as background, but lurches frequently, sometimes unexpected to the fore, and second because we hear the meaning of the words in the way we normally pick up song lyrics,” while Wired Magazine calls Eno’s soundscapes “a tapestry of pillowy synths, minor-key melodies, chiming guitars and skittering drums.”
• All of these elements come together for the release of the EP, which was produced by Eno and features his original artwork on vinyl and CD.
• Guest vocalists on this EP include Brian’s daughter Darla, who duets with Brian on ‘In The Future’, and renowned actress Bronagh Gallagher (‘The Commitments’, ‘Pulp Fiction’) on ‘West Bay’.
• This release acts as an intriguing addition to ‘Drums Between The Bells’, released earlier this year.
• Brian’s first album for Warp, 2010’s ‘Small Craft On A Milk Sea’, is also released on standalone vinyl for the first time.
