England BAND Is Tropical are set to release their modular third LP 'Black Anything' via the newly founded, New York based Axis Mundi Records, with the first two songs from the album, 'Crawl / On My Way', released as the first of five 10" vinyls on 8th December 2014.
Working alongside producer and collaborator Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode, formerly of Clor), IS TROPICAL set out in the summer of 2014 to record the album across five continents; North America, Africa, Europe, Asia and South America.
The result, 'Black Anything', will be released in five 10" transparent picture disc installments, containing two tracks per vinyl. The artwork is a visual representation of both the recording process and the release, with each 10" vinyl displaying the continent in which the tracks were recorded. When displayed on top of each other, the five vinyls create the globe, unifying the concept as a whole. "Each vinyl will be an art work and a tribute to the continent it was recorded in. It is being made available worldwide without prejudice to territories. The records are being promoted through local networks of people who are inspired by the project".
