After two successful EP releases, London electronic duo Labyrinth Ear have announced the US release of their debut album "The Orchid Room" on 22ndSeptember. To coincide with the release they will also release a special edition of the album in the UK, featuring exclusive new content including an excellent remix of euphoric lead single 'Lorna' by L.A producer and Cutters Records affiliate Kauf.
Labyrinth Ear are a UK duo made up of Emily and Tom. Coming from different sides of London, they were brought together by mutual tastes in music, while each bringing their own set of influences. Emily's folk-like lyrics invoke colourful, visual stories, while bringing together a wide range of musical influences, ranging from classic film scores, world music and vintage electronica. Their songs are both melancholic and euphoric, combining samples with synths and the psychedelic. The result is a combination of worldly sounds with child-like vocals to create fantasia pop music with a foot in the past, a grasp of the present and an eye to the future.
Having completed EU and US tours, taking in CMJ and The Great Escape in the last year, and supporting the likes of Kavinksy, Peaking Lights &Andrew Weatherall, Com Truise and Pictureplane, Labyrinth Ear are certainly ones to watch out for when they announce upcoming UK dates.
The '12 Years A Slave' director will receive the accolade at the London Film Festival in October.
