SALES NOTES

Clocking in at 11 minutes, this is a radical deconstruction of the track 'Bint El Khandaq’ that appears on the Mashrou’ Leila album ‘Ibn El Leil’. Lost Souls Of Saturn tease out the underlying emotion and yearning present in the original and take the listener on a beguiling, symphonic ambient journey that calls to mind Wolfgang Voigt’s much loved Gas project, or the shimmering imaginary landscapes of Brian Eno.

Renowned for their rousing, sensual electro-pop Mashrou’ Leila’s songs touch on political freedom, LGBT rights, race, religion and modern Arabic identity.

Lost Souls Of Saturn were approached by the band to reinterpret the original track and the stunning results fit perfectly as their debut release on R&S.

This is the next step in the evolution of Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa’s Lost Souls Of Saturn project. Look out for an album on R&S in 2018.
