The London duo's second LP is out in April.
Out in April, it's the second full-length to come from the London duo, AKA Matt Benyayer and Thomas Edwards, following their 2014 debut LP Imagin. Othona sees the pair incorporating "contemporary techno, classic electronica and their roots in British bass music," with a hands-on, hardware-heavy approach, drawing on their experience playing live. The photos and field recordings, captured at "isolated structures within different landscapes," were key elements of inspiration, in particular those from their visits to Bradwell-On-Sea, a small village in Essex and the site of an ancient (and now mostly eroded) Roman fort called Othona.
The album will be available on vinyl, CD and digital formats, with artwork from Harry Cresswell. Before its release in April, a single, Kilter / Acacia, lands on March 17th. Though neither track appears on Othona, the label says they were "recorded from the same time period."
Listen to "Kilter."
