As we near the official release date for Szun Waves‘ much anticipated new album Earth Patterns, and following the transcendent ‘New Universe’, the trio have shared ‘Exploding Upwards’. The single comes with an accompanying video made by Dom Harwood / Infinite Vibes. Watch it below and grab Earth Patterns when it’s out on August 19th through The Leaf Label.
Four years on from the release of New Hymn To Freedom, which was one of our Albums Picks of 2018, Szun Waves are back to dazzle us with their third album, Earth Patterns. Laurence Pike, Luke Abbott and Jack Willie, the three extraordinary and accomplished musicians that make up Szun Waves, got together for three days of improvisation at the end of their 2019 European tour, which resulted in hours of music. Speaking about the record, Abbott says:
“I think the record we’ve ended up with is an emotional outpouring. There’s a fluidity to it that feels like we tapped into something quite raw. The last record felt like drifting in space but I see this new record as a journey from the outer reaches of the universe down onto the earth, like a macrocosm to microcosm arc.”
Earth Patterns is set for release on August 19th through The Leaf Label and ahead of it they have shared the transcendent ‘New Universe’. The single comes with an accompanying video directed by Dom Harwood and you can watch it below.
A firm favourite this year, Szun Waves‘ second album New Hymn To Freedom grabbed us by the heart and refuses to let go. The trio’s third single, the transcendent ‘Moon Runes’, has been laced with a gorgeous video by director/AV designer Sam Wiehl, who had this to say:
“The new visual continues the themes of deep space geography and landscape coupled with ideas around microbiology and microorganisms. Content in this video and the previous video for ‘Constellation’ were designed to be used in the band’s new live AV show.”
Szun Waves are nearing the release of their much-awaited second album New Hymn To Freedom, and after enticing us with ‘Constellation’ and ‘Temple’, the trio have let loose another transcendent cut, ‘Moon Runes’. Take a listen below and grab the record when it drops on August 31st through The Leaf Label.
The band have also announced a string of shows in the UK in support of the album, including a special 360 degree A/V show at London’s Space Gallery on Thursday 30th August.
