As fans since 2014, we’re very excited to be releasing the debut vinyl from Danish multi-disciplinary artist øjeRum. Titled ‘when birds fly, the eyes of heaven can rest’, the LP features two extended tracks of aetherial, haunting and otherworldly beauty.
The cover art is a hand-cut collage, part of an ever growing body of incredible work from this talented Dane. The artwork expresses the audio perfectly. A floating, drifting haze of light, subtly shifting, organic. This is a world to lose yourself in.
"Veritably curling off the platter like opium smoke, the two sides of When Birds Fly… place the listener in a gorgeous state of suspended animation akin to the blissful serenity encouraged by Kevin Drumm’s Imperial Distortion, but perhaps massaged with Elodie’s special oils, which should maybe come as little surprise as Elodie’s Andrew Chalk is responsible for post-production on Part I.
That first side is a real beauty, unfurling some 17 minutes of thee most languid, golden synth and choral harmonics and shivering partials with a patience and steadiness of hand that’s just an absolute pleasure to undergo. Likewise, Part II is a pure dream sequence, but this time riding dense, phosphorescing waves of organ drone with a deeply blue, melancholic quality that places it in a very special category on our shelves.
The LP is housed in a reverse board sleeve. Pressed on heavyweight clear 180g vinyl, cut at The Carvery. Limited to 300 copies.
