Last week, East India Youth announced details of his brand new album titled Culture Of Volume; his first since signing to XL Recordings. Today he reveals the first piece of music, the sonically entrancing “Carousel”.
Over the last year, London-based East India Youth has combined strikingly original music with euphoric live performances and has quickly become recognized as one of the most experimental artists around. His recently announced second album titled Culture Of Volume is his first since signing to XL Recordings and follows his debut album Total Strife Forever (released in January 2014 on Stolen Records) that went on to be nominated for the Mercury Prize.
Mostly recorded and produced in his bedroom at home in London and named after a fragment of verse from the poem ‘Monument’ by Rick Holland, Culture Of Volume was mixed by Graham Sutton and the artwork was created by visual artist Dan Tombs (inspired by Andy Warhol’s experiments with computer technology).
