Sad City (aka Glasgow-based Northern Irishman Gary Caruth) has teamed up with Phonica Records’ Special Editions for a new EP, ‘Introduction to Lisboa/Sloe’. Produced in Lisbon using a mixture of field recordings taken in and around the city, alongside Sad City’s deft electronica, the result is a melancholic journey.
Following up on the tremendous ‘You Will Soon Find That Life Is Wonderful’ from last year, ‘Introduction to Lisboa/Sloe’ brings the listener into a similarly ethereal world across six tracks.
Our favourite of those six tracks is ‘Scyphozoa’ – eight shimmering minutes of broken piano and synths over a building bass line.
This is out now on vinyl via Phonica Records.
