Rival Consoles is set to release new album 'Persona' on April 13th.
The producer - Ryan Lee West - returns later this year, with live dates and a flurry of new material.
New album 'Persona' is incoming, lead by new track 'Unfolding' and its cinematic influence.
Prompted by a famous scene in Ingmar Bergman's film of the same name, it's an exploration of shifting identities.
Rival Consoles explains...
“My music is generally inward looking. I like finding something about the self within music, that doesn't have to be specific but maybe asks something or reveals something. This record is a continuation on the self through electronic sounds. Like Legowelt once said ‘a synthesiser is like a translator for unknown emotions’, which I think sums up what I am trying to do.”
“I think all these emotions we have make up our persona. So in a way by finding new ones you alter or expand your persona. And that is what I want my music to try to do. I deliberately aimed to be more sonically diverse with this record. I wanted to experiment more. I wanted to create new sounds and new emotions.”
Tune in now.
Rival Consoles will play London's XOYO on April 12th.
