London-based composer, producer & multi-instrumentalist DoomCannon has announced the release of his debut album ‘Renaissance’ due 15th July via Brownswood Recordings.
Along with the album announcement DoomCannon has also shared the double singles ‘Black Liberation Prologue’ and ‘Black Liberation’
Regarding the album DoomCannon comments:
“When writing the album, it felt like a transition from writing in other bands and being a part of other people’s projects to having my own voice and to speak about my Black British experience growing up around London. There are things I had to “unlearn”, ways I had to shape myself and my views on the world; greed, corrupt governments and police brutality within the UK and my stance on it all. ‘Renaissance’ is my letter to London about how it raised me and shaped who I am today.”
‘Black Liberation’ is a chilled instrumental track with an urban vibe that’s defined by the wandering coffee-stained bass and singular saxophone outbursts. The track features a flurry of activity, particularly from the drums along with quieter moments. ‘Black Liberation Prologue’ brings in an interesting monologue of black identity over sweeping strings that echo the deep emotion of the words. This is music to think by and music that can change a life.
