24/02/14 Hannah Peel's Fabricstate EP is here
Artist and composer Hannah Peel returns with the fantastic Fabricstate EP, her first new material since her Nailhouse EP earlier this year. Fabricstate was recorded amidst an Aladdin’s cave of analogue synths in London’s East End, melding the emotive organic instruments of Hannah’s previous releases, with a warm, pulsing electronic edge. The release takes in a diverse set of influences, referencing Hannah’s love for the golden age of cinema and Italo Calvino’s 1972 book Invisible Cities, the imagined travels of Kublai Khan, through the very real loneliness felt by living in big cities, the failure and building of new relationships, to the dreams of a better future. Enjoy the video for EP cut ‘Desolation Row’ above.
