‘Here From Where We Are’, Pariah’s first release in six years, marks a natural progression in his sound across nine interconnected pieces.
After just six months messing around making his own stuff on Logic, Pitchfork coverage piqued the interest of the legendary R&S, and over the next two years he released three EPs with the Belgian label. Since then, Arthur Pariah has continued to DJ around the world and play live with Blawan as Karenn.
‘Here From Where We Are’ is inspired by a series of very personal reflections, responses and reactions. Pariah is keen for people to process it in their own way, free from interference.
Opening with the transcendental ‘Log Jam’ which spills into the huge, empty and plaintive ‘Pith’, the artist distils his experiences into an album of nine moving, multi-layered tracks, where peculiar textures combine with rich harmonies and absorbing melodies into a heady mix of abstracted environments, formally structured songs and sound collages.
