Seftel has announced an eponymous debut album, to be released on 27th May on Lo Recordings, written by Larry Seftel with production from Panos Ghikas and Johannes Von Wieseker of The Chap.
The promo says Larry is “Influenced as much by literature as music”.
Based in Hackney, London ” Seftel weaves emotive and poetic lyrics over abstract sound palettes resulting in an array of trajectories: sometimes intimate and warm, frequently obscure and disturbing, but always a tad discomforting. This is due in no small part to Seftel’s deadpan vocal delivery juxtaposed with the often-nightmarish scenes that his songs describe.”
He cites influences such as Lenny Tristano, Robert Wyatt and Boulez & Ligeti during the writing of the album.
In anticipation of the album release, Lo Recordings have recently unveiled the video for lead single ‘Architects’. Directed by Larry Seftel, the video is the perfect compliment to his music, occupying a unique space where the boundaries between words, rhythm and art are blurred in an entrancing and surreal fashion.
