THOM SONNY GREEN ANNOUNCES DEBUT LP
HIGH ANXIETY LP OUT AUGUST 19TH ON SUDDEN RECORDS / CANVASBACK
LISTEN TO DEBUT TRACK "VIENNA":
PRE-ORDER HIGH ANXIETY:
Occupying the strange, low-lit space between the subterranean beats of Clams Casino and Arca's abstract shapes, Thom Sonny Green has announced his debut solo project High Anxiety, out August 19th via his own label Sudden Records (in conjunction with Infectious in the UK and Canvasback in the US). In a sharp left-field turn from his day job as drummer for the world conquering alt-J, on High Anxiety Green unveils
his long-abiding interest in cerebral, idiosyncratic electronica with
an album that is warm yet experimental, playful yet considered,
superficially accessible yet simultaneously deep,
with Green demonstrating his complete artistry as songwriter, producer
and visual artist.
Over the breath-taking span of 21 diverse tracks made
over the course of two years on the road, Green displays a true auteur's
knack for versatility, hopscotching effortlessly from the pastoral,
Boards of Canada esoterica of tracks like "Oslo" and "Palms" to the narcotised, lysergic, trip hop of "Ping," and the ominous, juddering rhythms of "Blew" and "Large," which wouldn't sound out of place on a David Lynch soundtrack. Green has also collaborated with visual artist and director Nichola Farnan,
creating unique pieces of video art to accompany each track to form a
completely immersive experience for the listener, allowing them to lose
themselves in Green's distinctive, surreal, all-encompassing world.
Catch Thom performing at Latitude Fest in Henham Park, Suffolk. Tickets available at http://www.latitudefestival.com/tickets.
