Getting ready for 2014 part 7

East India Youth

…or Introducing East India Youth.

East India Youth is the work of London based ‘sound gardener/song architect’ (so it says on his soundcloud page) William Doyle.

Now signed to Stolen Recordings, his previous release was the Hostel EP, which rightly picked up a number of plaudits. This is the sound of a very talented young man at work, music to lose and to find yourself in. To describe this merely as electronic pop is to be almost dismissive.

These are the two videos for doing the rounds which give you an excellent taste of what Mr. Doyle is up to.

His debut album, Total Strife Forever, will be released on January 13, and the tracklisting is as follows:

1. Glitter Recession
2. Total Strife Forever I
3. Dripping Down
4. Hinterland
5. Heaven, How Long
6. Total Strife Forever II
7. Looking for Someone
8. Midnight Koto
9. Total Strife Forever III
10. Song for a Granular Piano
11. Total Strife Forever IV
