Hot on the heels of second LP Modern English Decoration last year, art rockers Ulrika Spacek announce they are to release a new EP, Suggestive Listening on 21st April through Tough Love Records for this years Record Store Day.
Having always been strong believers in a long play format when it comes to making records, but for this new release they decided it was time to explore the ‘extended play’ format. In preparation of its release, Ulrika Spacek curate a night called Oysterland which will take place the night before at Doomed Gallery in London. The EP will be played back-to-back in exhibit form, with the layers of instrumentation played on separate speakers. Audience members are invited to make their way around the gallery allowing a personal and unique listening experience. Speakers will be positioned inwards so that audience members can either walk through the musical layers of the EP or position themselves in the middle of the room where all parts come together.
Lead track ‘Lord Luck’ channels the characteristic Spacek sound that we have come to know and love, but with its sombre edge and dulcet tones, it could easily be mistaken for one of the 90s Britpop greats.
