Mercury-nominated Northampton composer/producer Maps is set to release his fourth album ‘Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss.’ on the 10th May 2019 through Mute, and today shares a new track from the album called ‘Just Reflecting’.
Maps (James Chapman) had this to say about the new release:
“I wanted to push everything to the limit with this record, and explore new territory for Maps. The orchestral instrumentation and addition of other musicians and singers played a huge part in finding the purer and more human emotion I was searching for. I learnt the violin as I was growing up, so I’m glad it finally came in useful!”
- Both Sides
- Howl Around
- Just Reflecting
- She Sang To Me
- The Plans We Made
- New Star
- You Exist In Everything
In case you’re not familiar with past Maps releases, they fall in the shoegaze, post rock, indie rock, electronic rock realm(s). Here is a track from their debut album, We Can Create, which is a must-have for fans of 2000s era shoegaze bands like Autolux.
