Matt Wilkinson of Apple Music premiered "Caption" by Rarelyalways on his radio show recently claiming: "This is where people like Arlo Parks, Fontaines D.C. & slowthai got their break when they were starting out. Today we add to that list another incredible talent. Rarelyalways is about to blow up in a big way." Shortly thereafter, Pitchfork shared the track and said of the artist: "he synthesizes his influences while effortlessly carving out a niche for himself." Expect more from Rarelyalways later this year with his upcoming EP Baby Buffalo.
Peel is the debut project from Sean Cimino and Isom Innis; both multi-instrumentalists, as well as a visual artist and producer respectively. The project was born from a month-long recording session between the two artists within Innis’s concrete loft, above the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. Naturally, the cavernous space served as an industrial incubator for musical experimentation: where fleets of sewing machines once reverberated in the 1930s with metallic rhythms, now echoed a wall-of-sound of drums, amps, and modular synthesizers. Inspired by such legendary records like Second Edition [Public Image Ltd.] and The Pleasure Principle [Gary Numan]; records where spirit and improvisation guided expression.
