Burial has released a new EP titled ANTIDAWN. Out now via Hyperdub, the project spans five tracks and 43 minutes. Stream it below.
According to press materials, “the record explores an interzone between dislocated, patchwork songwriting and eerie, open-world, game space ambience. In the resulting no man’s land, lyrics take precedence over song, lonely phrases colour the haze, a stark and fragmented structure makes time slow down.”
“Antidawn seems to tell a story of a wintertime city, and something beckoning you to follow it into the night,” the release continues. “The result is both comforting and disturbing, producing a quiet and uncanny glow against the cold. Sometimes, as it enters ‘a bad place,’ it takes your breath away. And time just stops.”
ANTIDAWN follows Burial’s 2021 track ‘Dolphinz’ as well as Shock Power of Love, his split EP with London-based producer Blackdown.
