TUNE Phaeleh - Mountain
Phaeleh returns. Following a couple of years rekindling his love affair with music, amassing more guitar pedals and tropical fish; he's back with a treasure chest of new sounds, a full band and live show.
“This EP in my mind is a good indication of where I've been musically over the past few years and also what's happening release wise after it. There’s a combination of more traditional, beat-driven electronic music and the more ambient side of things - which is where I came from originally and seem to have recently gone back full circle to. Whilst most of these tracks were written with various albums in mind, they seem to have come together quite nicely on this EP, and I'm glad it's ended up that way.”
Breaking out his vintage machines and sprinkling with piano, tape delay and nods to John Carpenter's bleak synthetic atmospheres; ‘All That Remains’ ranges from icy house dystopia (‘Mountain’), heartbreaking solo piano (‘Acceptance’), garage roots explorations (‘Remember’), classical themes (‘Trails Of Light’) and guitar driven melancholia (‘All That Remains’).
Since his debut release in 2008, Matt Preston aka Phaeleh has developed an inimitable style of electronic music. His last three releases on his own Undertow label - ‘The Cold In You’, ‘Tides’ and ‘A World Without’ - have cemented his position as one of the most consistently exciting producers to emerge from his hometown of Bristol. A new LP is set for release later this year.
