Composer, musician, songwriter, producer and arranger Leo Abrahams has been releasing his interesting blend of ambient- electronica, folk-rock and modern classical music for over 15 years now. In this time he has worked with a multitude of artists including Wild Beasts, Brian Eno and Paul Simon; also co-writing and arranging a variety of film soundtracks, including Peter Jackson’s 2009 release ‘The Lovely Bones’ and Steve McQueen’s ‘Hunger’.
The composer’s own work stands in a quite distinct universe, however, with his 2015 album ‘Daylight’ touching upon classical and electronic but never really committing to either.
Lo Recordings have decided to release an expanded edition of ‘Daylight’ for those who may have missed it the first time round (that includes me), and this Deluxe version comes with additional tracks ‘Theory For Large Molecules’ and ‘Wish Wait’, as well as a host of remixes from the likes of CFCF, Grasscut, Brian Eno, Zammuto, EM, Ambidextrous, Emmy The Great, and many more!
New cut ‘Steal Time’ takes pride of place on the new edition and has a brand new accompanying video which was directed by Aisha Orazbayeva, a Kazakh-born violinist, who also dwells in strange corners of visual art. An entrancing watch and a pleasurable listen, who would think that hypnotic robotic vocals could be so soothing and calming! Listen and watch above.
