Early next month, Luke Taylor and Sinead McMillan, comprising the Welsh duo Face + Heel
, will release No Stars
, the first of three EPs planned for this year and the inaugural release of the new electronic label Warm
, an offshoot of the long-running London club night of the same name. On "One Hundred Years," McMillan's distant singing—Do you make a home from a house that's burning?
—contrasts an elegiac instrumental featuring a percussion break resembling the distinct, metal-on-metal rattling of trains rolling over railroad switches, altogether building a song both earthbound and angelic. For more, check out the EP's even darker title track on Dummy
, and download last month's great live performance at Boiler Room
. No Stars
comes out May 7th.
