Reveals New tracks
Out today the new evocative second single, ‘The Archer’, from Faten Kanaan’s new album ‘A Mythology of Circles’ (mastered by Heba Kadry) released on November 13. A transcendent composition with swathes of shimmering electronics overdubbed in real time, it’s beguiling and majestic. Double AA side includes the equally hypnotising companion piece, ‘Hesperides’.
The new album explores cyclical repetitions in nature and time, and the allegories about them. These re-conjured stories are an attempt to temper the anthropocentric hubris. Reminders to revere nature without the need to overpower it. To embrace ‘mystery’ in our feats of discovery and innovation. The album also has an autobiographical side: a story of movement, migration, and return. Of renewing hope in the face of political and environmental struggles.
Inspired by cinematic forms and mythological story structures: from sweeping landscapes and quiet romances, to patterned tensions and dream sequences; Faten brings an earthy, visceral touch to electronic music. In symbiosis with technology is an appreciation for the vulnerability of human limitations and nuances.
‘A Mythology of Circles’ will be available on limited edition coloured vinyl via Dinked along with LP and CD on 13th November.
