Artist and composer Hannah Peel returns on the 3rd February 2014 with the Fabricstate EP, her first new material since her Nailhouse EP earlier this year.
Fabricstate was recorded amidst an Aladdin's cave of analogue synths in London's East End, melding the emotive organic instruments of Hannah's previous releases, with a warm, pulsing electronic edge. Blending so well it's hard to tell where the electronic ends and the organic begins. Soring Morricone style orchestral brass and string melody lines merge effortlessly with deep pulsating vintage Juno synths and inventive 'found sound' rhythm samples.
Fabricstate takes in a diverse set of influences, referencing Hannah's love for the golden age of cinema and Italo Calvino's 1972 book Invisible Cities, the imagined travels of Kublai Khan, through the very real loneliness felt by living in big cities, the failure and building of new relationships, to the dreams of a better future.
