d’Eon – Al-Qiyamah

Monday, you come so soon. To help you ease into the week, we suggest this nine minute journey from onetime Grimes collaborator (their joint effort – ‘Darkbloom’ – is worth a listen) and all round oddball, d’Eon.

Al-Qiyamah is the first single from his confusingly titled album ‘LP’ and it’s named after the 75th Sura of the Qur’an, which we’re told has to do with resurrection. Out on 5th June on Hippos in Tanks, the single bounces from glitch a la Oneohtrix Point Never to the kind of electro-pop of which Robyn would be proud. Somehow it works.

So (blasphemy alert) roll away the rock and emerge anew to nine minutes of dream-pop.
