Ben Frost

Unveils new track ‘Nolan’ taken from forthcoming album A U R O R A – out on 26/27 May.

NOLAN

Ben Frost has unveiled a new track, ‘Nolan’, and spoken about how his experiences in the Eastern DR Congo influenced his new album A U R O R A:

Under the threatening gaze of the very active Mount Nyiragongo Volcano, Eastern Congo exists in a constant flux of destruction and re-creation: an Ouroboros. A sonic arms race where distortion, and visceral power are not affectations of choice, or fashion, but byproducts of raw necessity- creating a sprawling composition of truly operatic proportions, barely held together, in unnerving beauty and unflinching horror, with no beginning and no end.” – Ben Frost (speaking of the environment in which A U R O R A was conceived)

Listen to ‘Nolan’ here:


Performed by Ben Frost with Greg Fox, Shahzad Ismaily and Thor Harris and largely written in Eastern DR Congo, A U R O R A aims directly, through its monolithic construction, at blinding luminescent alchemy; not with benign heavenly beauty but through decimating magnetic force.

Starved of all the adornments of its predecessor; wholly absent of guitar, of piano, of string instruments and natural wooden intimacy, A U R O R A offers a defiant new world of fiercely synthetic shapes and galactic interference, pummeling skins and pure metals.

This Saturday sees Ben Frost’s headline show at the Village Underground in London, the first of a series of summer dates which includes Sonar and ATP Iceland (full details below).

A U R O R A, Frost’s fifth studio album, is released on 26 May on CD, vinyl and download, with a limited edition yellow vinyl also available.

Watch the first two in a triptych of films created by Trevor Tweeten and Richard Mosse here:

Frost’s collaboration with Mosse and Tweeten – the multimedia installation, ‘The Enclave’ – is showing at The Vinyl Factory, London until 26 April.
