GEORGE FITZGERALD 'BURNS' OUT 16TH OCTOBER 2017 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Following a worldwide premiere as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1, George FitzGerald is pleased to mark his return with new track, ‘Burns’.

‘Burns’ is the first new music from FitzGerald since his 2015 debut album, Fading Love and is a nod towards his forthcoming second album, due to land in Spring 2018. On ‘Burns’ FitzGerald says: "The track started life as a kind of strange studio experiment making a beatless chant out of loads of contrasting vocal samples, and then morphed over time. It works as a moment on a dancefloor but at heart it's meant to be quite meditative". 

After cutting his teeth as an international touring DJ, FitzGerald shifts his focus to the live sphere, proving himself to be a rare example of an artist capable of making the transition from DJ playing tracks for club consumption to composer of full length LPs and live musician. With FitzGerald at the helm alongside his band consisting of Mike Lesirge of Bonobo’s touring band plus drummer Guillaume Jambel, the debut live show takes place at London’s prestigious Hoxton Hall this November with another following in Amsterdam. In addition, FitzGerald and his band will support Bonobo on his final tour date of 2017 at Brighton Dome.

ALDOUS HARDING 'PARTY' OUT 19TH MAY 2017

On 19th May 2017, Aldous Harding releases her second album, Party. Following the recent single ‘Horizon’ – a lover’s call to arms which also features on her 4AD debut – a new track and video goes online today. Watch ‘Imagining My Man’ in the player below.

Party was produced with the award-winning John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) in Bristol, a world away from Harding’s New Zealand home. As well as contributions from Parish, Perfume Genius’s Mike Hadreas lends vocals to ‘Imagining My Man’ and Party closer ‘Swell Does The Skull’.
Igniting interest with her eponymous debut album released just two years ago, Aldous Harding quickly became a name murmured on many lips. She’s known for her sinister torch songs, gentle laments and eerie odes delivered with a charismatic combination of hubris, shrewd wit and quiet horror. Party introduces a new talent to the stark and unpopulated dramatic realm where Kate Bush and Scott Walker reside.
