Protection, the duo of CHVRCHES’ Iain Cook and Glasgow musician Scott Paterson, have announced their second EP, SEEDS II. The follow-up to April’s SEEDS I is due out in September via Saint Lucky Records. Check out the new single ‘Thirst Shrine’ below.
“‘Thirst Shrine’ started off as a little seed idea that I sent to Iain, the vocal chop and the drum break stuff,” Paterson said in a statement. “We bounced it back and forth until it sounded right.”
Cook added: “I heard the demo while touring with CHVRCHES after lockdown. It felt so fresh since we hadn’t really dabbled with Drum and Bass so directly yet. The vocal chop inspired me to push further. Between Austin and Chicago I got Covid, so I just lay in bed feverishly chopping up for hours working on it. Getting the bass right took about five layers of sounds, we wanted it enormous, enveloping like early UK dubstep or DnB.”
