DESCRIPTION

Anna Meredith will release her debut EP, Black Prince Fury, on limited edition 180-gram heavyweight vinyl on 15 October via The Vinyl Factory / Moshi Moshi Records. The four track EP opens with the throbbing horn fanfare of Nautilus, premiered online today, and goes on to explore lush psychedelia and slow build, downtempo electronica across 18 minutes of inspired soundscapes.

Meredith’s groundbreaking contemporary composition in the classical music sphere prompted the Daily Telegraph to call her "one of Britain's leading young composers," but she has been working increasingly in the electronic arena too. In the last year or so, Meredith has been writing and recording the songs that would become Black Prince Fury, road testing the new tracks at a handful of live shows with the likes of James BlakeThese New Puritans and Mira Calix.

There are few artists who can switch effortlessly between having a composition performed by the National Youth Orchestra at the BBC Proms one week, to premiering their new track on Pitchfork the next. Which probably goes some way to explaining why Anna Meredith is such an exceptional talent.
