22 year old Irishman Eoghan Reid, or REID to give him his producer / shouted name, is the first signing to Brighton super-blog Blah Blah Blah’s new imprint. His ‘Genesis EP’ is out at the end of the month and it’s perfect autumnal music. You can practically see the ‘season turning/leaves falling’ BBC montage.
Irritatingly REID is also part of up-and-coming electro rockers Zombie Computer, hedging his bets over which genre stays the course. Human Drizzle are also forever indebted to them for introducing us to the ‘Hard Working Class Heroes Festival’ in Ireland. Best. Name. Ever.
Without overplaying the nature motifs, there is something of the brooding storm in REID’s early offerings. ‘Genesis’ and its B-side, ‘Forrest’, are foreboding and occasionally menacing – but without ever really breaking into the noise downpour they would have done if they’d been made by Fuck Buttons. We say pop on his Blah Blah Blah mixtape and usher in the autumn.
