One third of Test Icicles, Sam Mehran, releases a collection of works. Whilst his former band mates (Rory Atwell andDev Hynes) have been producing and working on counteless high-profile side projects, we've been privately enjoying Sam Mehran's intrepid foray into his alter ego Outer Limitz notably with the song I Kontakt. Now dropping the Z in favour of an S, Sam launches a full public assault by consolidating his Singles, Demos & Rarities into one edition for you all to enjoy as well.
'I feel like I have many stories ahead of me. Over the past few years I've learnt that people are people and music is music and I can't really judge or say I believe deep down that one this is genuinely better than another, Life is just so crazy. I used to think I was an alien, but Earth has been such an epic experience that I'm now glad to call it home. But who knows, maybe one day I'll leave and realize that home was some place else.'Sam Mehran
This compilation represents the perfect portal into a special artistic imagination, a thrilling outsider-art artefact and even more reason for excitement regarding whatever Mehran dreams up next.
HANNAH PEEL first came to recognition with her mesmerising, hand-punched, music box 80’s (Cocteau Twins, Soft Cell, New Order) covers EP Rebox, in 2010. Having released her critically lauded solo debut album The Broken Wave a year later, Hannah then formed The Magnetic North, a highly acclaimed collaborative project with Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good The Bad and The Queen, Gorillaz) and Erland Cooper (Erland & The Carnival).
Hannah is currently putting the finishing touches to her new solo album Awake But Always Dreaming and a second Rebox EP on the music box which includes an exquisite version of 'Palace' by fellow Domino Publishing artists, Wild Beasts. In May 2015 she is setting off an UK tour with East India Youth after scoring and playing strings on his recent Culture Of Volume album.
In addition to her increasingly high profile career as a solo artist and producer, the Northern Irish born singer has also composed for TV, Film, Theatre and Dance, winning a 2013 RTS AWARD FOR THE THEME TO THE CHANNEL 4 SHOW DATES, as well as two British arrow awards for her Marie Curie Daffodil advertisement.
