Rising Los Angeles producer Lo-Fang has signed to 4AD - check out his debut single below.
High culture, low culture. High fidelity, low fidelity.
Real name Matthew Hemerlein, the Lo-Fang project continually swings between two poles. Working on his debut album, the songwriter began demos in rural Maryland, before travelling out to Cambodia to continue the creative process.
Gathering these recordings, sessions were completed at the iconic Capitol Studios building. Now co-operating with 4AD, Lo-Fang is set to release a limited 12" double A-side single, '#88' / 'Boris' on October 7th.
Pre-orders are available now, with both tracks focussing on Hemerlein's classical background. Bold, striking songwriting, Lo-Fang seems to operate in broad brushstrokes, throwing swathes of paint into the canvas before bringing each track into sharp, emotional focus.
Hugely promising, you can listen to both '#88' and 'Boris' below.
