James Heather is a talented pianist and composer. After his debut ep Modulations: EP 1,
he announced the first full-length. Stories From Far Away On Piano is out on August 18th via Ninja Tune’s imprint Ahead Of Our Time. We already shared “Last Minute Change Of Heart”; “Biomes” is a new excerpt. Listen below.
His words about the track:
“Biomes was written, like the other album tracks, about a news story. This specific one was focussed on the Paris climate talks, and in homage to the Biomes of our world. It’s supposed to feel upbeat and triumphant as I hoped for a good outcome, where we would respect the natural wonders of our world. Of course initially it seemed to be good news, but now Trump is pulling the USA out as we speak. This could’ve been a key moment in history where we all got on the same page to protect the Earth for the generations to come, but one decision may put a stop to that. In many years to come, will we look back to this moment as an opportunity missed?”
