LCY announces new EP, 'He Hymns', on fabric Originals, shares single: Listen

LCY will put out the next release on fabric Originals, debuting on the label with a five-track EP.

Set for release digitally on 5th May, with a vinyl release following two weeks later, 'He Hymns' sees LCY explore the bass-focused and percussive elements of past material released via their SZNS7N label.

In a statement, LCY said: "'He Hymns' is a song book written in relation to organised religion, its relations to my continued unpacking of gender and sexuality and how a lot of these forced conformities have subconsciously affected my musical expression and often conflict my existence and ability to move forward.

"Over the last two years, I've been finding ways to tie songs of worship (dedicated to my own fictional worlds) into club tracks by writing these expressions and reframing them, with a special focus on somatics and how movement and dance can act as a form of therapy. Although this project doesn't have its own non-fiction story-line its intent was to act as a hymn book from the same universe. It has served me as a form of creative healing."

To mark the EP's announcement, LCY has shared lead track 'Bad Blood', which, they said, "is one of the only purely darker sounding tracks on the record. It was created with raw hatred, self hatred, jealousy and resentment in mind, [and] placed on the B-side in opposition to the more uplifting sounds of the A-side".

Listen to 'Bad Blood' below.

At the start of this year, LCY released the EP '/Y\' via SZNS7N.

Before 'He Hymns', fabric Originals will release a new album from TYGAPAW, 'love has never been a popular movement.', on 21st April.
