Lemon Jelly vibe of ‘Jive County’. Add to this the floating trip-hop of ‘Let's Normalise’ and change direction once more with the clanging industrial beats of ‘Little Green Men’ and its extraordinary orchestral coda.
My Sanctuary was recorded over a year long period, while he was also working on other projects. Originally, he had conceived it as a purely instrumental album. "I had some very chilled rhythms and beats and noises. But then I realised I also wanted something you could whistle in the shower and so I moved to a more song-based approach."
In addition to Ken himself, vocalists on the album include Carol Keogh of The Tycho Brahe and Cathy Davy, now signed to Parlophone as a solo artist. Keogh played a particularly important role, singing on half a dozen tracks and contributing lyrics.
Autamata will be bringing their live show to the UK to tie in with a second single in January and the release of My Sanctuary in February.
Music is his sanctuary. Let it be yours too.
