The next release on Murlo’s Coil records comes from Irish producer, Clu.
‘Always Forever’ marks the first new music from the artist since 2016, with a new track and video being shared from the EP every day this week. The two videos shared so far – for ‘I Lost My Way’ and ‘Ocelot’ – have featured Murlo’s distinctively animated visual style, providing a delicately paced narrative to Clu’s electronics.
The videos present the story of a hooded character, who is on a quest to find the forger of a Claddagh ring. Each video comes paired with a narrative quote. The first reads, “I remember how the ring glistened as she stroked my cheek”. The second continues, “I needed the metals for the forger. A contact out of the city told me to visit Ocelot in the Southern Quarter. She gave me a bell and my next location.”
‘Arp Citadel’ is the third track/video to be shared from the video, coming paired with the following quote: “The bell’s chime glanced off of the Citadel’s hard marble surface”.
The track, meanwhile, is a lush cut of soft pianos, sparkling synth arpeggios, a crisp beat and just a touch of delicate acid. Check it out below.
'Always Forever' will be officially released this Friday 1st November. Pre-order it here.
