Empire State Human, follow up the release of their last album “Soul of the Machine” (July 2013), with an album of instrumental tracks called “FUTURA” (March 2014).
ESH’s have always included instrumental tracks on their song based albums, and theses tracks have always been extremely well received. “FUTURA” is their first ever fully instrumental album, and also homage to Sci-Fi soundtracks, art installation music, film scores, ambient and electronic layered bleep music, that the band has loved all their musical lives.
To quote lead singer Aidan Casserly “Working purely on music that was never intended to have a voice on it, really helped us throw away the perceptions of who we are as a band, to not only ourselves but also to how others see us too. It’s been a very refreshing experience. It was also a brilliant learning curve and a great journey to make so soon after the last album (which was song based). Ideally, I can see us doing more of these in the future as it was one of the most positive studio experiences we’ve ever had. We’re looking to taking the positive experience into the completion of the remaining tracks on our next song based album “The Dark” in the coming months”.
