‘Chain’ is the 2nd single to be taken from producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams forthcoming album, ‘Daylight’ (out this November) and features vocals from his frequent studio sparring partner, and one of the godfathers of electronic music, Brian Eno.
One of the album’s many highlights, ‘Chain’ sees Eno’s cut-up vocals collide with Abraham’s intricate guitar playing, ricocheting rhythms and fractured electronics. It’s pop music, just not as you know it.
Accompanying the original is a remix from acclaimed Canadian producer CFCF who turns in a beatific Ambient Techno reworking, a surprisingly propulsive beat underpinning the track’s gauzy synths and sounds.
Having previously experimented with everything from folk and art-rock to modern classical and electronica, and worked with everyone from Roxy Music to Pulp, Abrahams’ new album sees the Londoner bring his myriad influences together to produce music as inspirational as it is unclassifiable.
Along with a veritable who's-who of contemporary Chicago avant garde collaborators, Jaime Fennelly's Mind Over Mirrors reconstructs classical concepts with a modern palette of sound. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 22, 2017
