We recently picked 'Charlev', the void-inverting trip from Oliver Coates, as our Track Of The Day. We hoped to hear more soon, and today we can bring you the news that the LCO musician and experimental producer will be releasing an album called Shelley's On Zenn-La through RVNG Intl. on September 7th.

Shelley's On Zenn-La at once refers to a legendary Stoke-on-Trent nightclub Shelley's Laserdome, and Coates' own alien planet Zenn-La. It's a world that Coates has brought into life on his album by "placing live cello playing into a chain of antagonism resulting in sounds I found beautiful.” This is then rendered into impeccable detail through constant machinations: “sitting on the tube, thinking: I’d remove the low end on that, compress that, add reverb to that.” The resulting Shelley's On Zenn-La promises to be a deeply fluorescent and hallucinogenic ride.

Following on from 'Charlev', our next exposure to the warped world of Zenn-La is new single 'A Church'. It begins with interplaying bass melodies, which are quickly elevated by delicate percussion. Soon we're introduced to chrysanthemum bear’s vocals, which call out to us from hidden crevices with an irresistible beauty, guiding us deeper into 'A Church'. Her voice stays present throughout the rest of the track, but she's never entirely within reach, as Coates keeps her words obscured by uncountable textures, intertwining to create a neon atmosphere. At times they fade away, allowing us to pick out certain ideas from chrysanthemum bear’s voice about forests and gardens, which build up the verdant scenery all around. Just as you feel you're finally near enough to grasp her, she evaporates, and the song comes to a smooth ending.

Shelley's On Zenn-La comes out on September 7th. Oliver Coates' previous single 'Charlev' will also feature on the album, revisit if you missed it:
