The Keep is the latest iteration of Oliver Knowles’ creative viewpoints, a musician whose journey has taken him from underground punk to left field electronics, relocating from London to Gothenburg in the process.
Exploratory digitalism with a heavy emphasis on atmosphere, his debut EP ‘Primer’ is out this week – December 6th, in fact – on the always-vital Houndstooth imprint.
It’s a wonderful introduction, broad but somehow managing to distill these elements into something potent and precise.
Ahead of the release we’re able to share a final preview, with The Keep handing new piece ‘Gammalane’ to Clash.
It’s a two part electronic symphony, one that reflects on subject matter “unsettling and beguiling…”
A work that focusses on “surrender and exhilaration” there’s a palpable sense of release as ‘Gammalane’ evolves, bursting into colour as the second chapter unfurls itself.
The producer comments..
“‘Gammalane’ is split into two parts. Part one of the track is meant to reflect a scenario that is both unsettling and beguiling at the same time. Being drawn to something that feels wrong or dangerous. Part 2 is ultimately the surrender and exhilaration that follows.”
Tune in now.
Catch The Keep at London’s Paper Dress Vintage on February 12th.
