object blue has announced a new EP, set to drop this month.
‘FIGURE BESIDE ME’ features two tracks object blue wrote around the time she met her now-fiancée in November 2017.
“Up until then I'd never made music about my life or emotions and I didn't intend to,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “But that day I sat in the silent uni library with my headphones on and the first minute of it just fell out of me into a blank Ableton project. I knew it was the dearest thing I'd made, and I've thought about it constantly over the last two years.”
In that time, object blue has seen her star rise considerably. She dropped her debut EP 'Do you plan to end a siege?' on Tobago Tracks to wide acclaim in 2018, which was followed later that year by 'REX' on Let’s Go Swimming.
This time, her EP will be self-released. “It may seem like 'only' two tracks, but they're the richest most earnest tracks of mine. I really adore them! and so I decided to self-release,” she wrote.
Along with a slew of festival shows this summer, object blue will play Haughton Festival alongside the likes of DJ Stingray, Ben UFO, Four Tet, Shanti Celeste, and more on August 8th. She also stepped up for our Fresh Kicks mix series last year. Listen here.
‘FIGURE BESIDE ME’ will be out on August 16th, 2019. Pre-order it here.
