Aidan Moffat is set to return to his L. Pierre moniker next year with new album 'The Island Come True'.
There's much, much more to Aidan Moffat than meets the eye. Best known for his darkly humorous bouts of songwriting, the Scottish artist has also proceeded to pursue more instrumental based endeavours under the L. Pierre pseudonym.
Silent since 2007, L. Pierre is set to be resurrected on a new album. 'The Island Come True' will be released on Melodic this January, with Aidan Moffat explaining that he wants to engage the listener's imagination rather than express any one message.
"It’s about taking the listener on a wee journey, but where that journey goes is entirely up to them” he commented recently. “I wanted this one to be more suggestive and mysterious than the previous records.”
Whereas Aidan Moffat's recent work has boast a clinical approach to sound, this new album is over-ridden with damaged textures. “Everything sounds so clean and clinical and perfect today, but I love hearing something that sounds worn and suggests the music has a history" the Scottish artist explained. "It’s gorgeous and sad at once, as though it's lived a life and survived to tell the tale.”
Here's preview track 'Doctor Alucard'.
