VISUALS – Solve For X (No Result)
VISUALS are the next release up on Nicolas Jaar’s Other People label on 27th October to stream at other-people.net and download for those with a subscription. The four song EP was produced by Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington and follows their support slots at DARKSIDE’s sell out shows across Europe earlier this month.
VISUALS is the project of NYC born and Berlin based songwriter and producer Andrew Fox, choosing the name as a dual reference to the cinematic in his music and an ocular disorder he suffered as a child, which left him with partial 2D vision. A long time friend and collaborator of Harrington’s, Fox recorded the EP solo in Brooklyn until handing it off first to Harrington and then to Jaar, adding adding layers of sly sonic abstraction and thump.
Over the course of its all-too-brief runtime, VISUALS’ EP pits the soulful against the inhuman, evoking everything from Broadcast’s eerie, hermetic pop experimentation to Prince’s minimalist sex funk. Filled with bottom-heavy love songs to an uncertain future, Fox’s cracked, weather-beaten drawl through a a gauntlet of rubber-band basslines, bone-dry drum machines and deft sample manipulation, the result is a four-song collection of rusty electronics with a beating heart.
Other People is the new imprint from Nicolas Jaar. Servicing music via a free weekly online streaming service with downloads available for those who sign up to a subscription.
