Description:

“There’s a saying that goes “don’t die with the music still inside you”, which after being horrified at some of the dubious music choices at recent family funerals he’d attended, UK producer Half decided to act upon.

 

In response to this he has created the soundtrack to his own send off for when the inevitable happens. Far from being a morbid affair, absorbing influences from the likes of Brian Eno, Sigur Ros and M83 at their most uplifting ‘Here Lies’ is a soul-soothing celebration.

 

Although the album features a host of collaborators and co-writers, ‘Here Lies’ was recorded in isolation swapping packets of data all over the globe and never actually met any of his co-conspirators in the recording process, instead swapping series of ideas, emails and dropboxes then mixing the results to create a cinematic requiem of sinister storms across layers of tranquillity.

 

Half has no plans to shuffle off this mortal coil as yet, but with this debut full length release he can go safe in the knowledge the playlist at his wake will have his seal of approval. ” – Border Series
