Featuring the members of Belgian band SHOWSTAR, but with the addition of a string quartet and keyboards / electronics, SILICON BALLET released a ‘one-off’ mini-album ‘Utopia‘ last year. However, presumably flushed by the positive reaction that received, the ‘side-project’ band have reconvened this year to work with Go! Team and Breeders producer, Gareth Parton, to release a new EP.
As seems customary with SILICON BALLET, everything is shrouded in mystery … the EP is due for release in 2013, but not even the label producing it, Rainboot, knows what stage has been reached in its production! However, the title track has been made available, and you can listen to it below. It’s a bit of a far cry from the earlier single ‘Sunglasses‘ which was pretty dark and manic as I recall, but a pleasant way to ease you in (or out) of the day.
Mixing, mastering, postal issues and, well ‘everything’ really considered, The full EP should be available in the next few months. Meantime, ‘Slowly Slowly‘ will be available to download from 19th November.
