The Leisure Society & Brian Eno - Brave Are The Waves

We’re extremely excited to announce a new collaboration. Back in 2008, our second ever release was The Leisure Society‘s debut album and it was a run-away success and the start of a long and diverse career. Now they’ve come back to us and they’ve brought the Godfather of ambient music, Brian Eno, along for the ride!

It’s out this Thursday on all digital platforms. Head to our instagram for a sneak preview.

The lead track, Lost At Sea, features the unmistakeable voice of Kate Stables from This Is The Kit, who Marcus also plays cornet with.  Listen to it on Spotify or other platforms now!

It’s an upbeat number – drones, guitars and drums creep in from behind ambient studio chatter to settle into a groove that will spellbind fans of Can, Stereolab and Aphex Twin alike.
