LV and Joshua Idehen

LV is Will Horrocks, Simon Williams and Gerv Gordon, who have been making music together since meeting at university about 10 years ago. Between them they play a variety of instruments; they like dusty old synths and kept in perfect only-just-working-order. Routes was written and recorded in intensive bursts over a 12 month period, and heavily features London vocalist Joshua Idehen, who first collaborated with LV on their 2010 Keysound 12” 38 EP .

LV is Will Horrocks, Simon Williams and Gerv Gordon, who have been making music together since meeting at university about 10 years ago. Between them they play a variety of instruments; they like dusty old synths and kept in perfect only-just-working-order. Routes was written and recorded in intensive bursts over a 12 month period, and heavily features London vocalist Joshua Idehen, who first collaborated with LV on their 2010 Keysound 12” 38 EP .

The album picks up some of the themes set out in the EP - Idehen’s lyrics explore the euphoria and accompanying alienation in his relationship with the city via multiple fragmented journeys. Whereas on the 38 EP Idehen’s vocals were a focus throughout, here they are often twisted, processed and bent out of shape, assimilated or swallowed up by the sound. At other points Idehen’s performance takes centre stage as a conspiratorial witness, a ghostly accomplice, or a disarmingly frank guide through the metropolis. The music itself reflects the schizoid, unpredictable nature of these journeys, incorporating everything from restless pirate-radio rhythms to intimate twilight melancholia. « hide
