According to the press release, The release follows a pattern Bibio has established in his work; releasing a follow up EP after an album exploring similar sonic ground.
This release draws on a familiar range of influences from traditional folk, peaceful atmospheric soundscapes and field recordings from the natural world. “Sleep On The Wing” is the first excerpt. Watch the official video below.
“When I write a new track, I sing melodies (often nonsensical) trying to find words that fit the melody and rhythm, then a phrase might come out that sets the theme of the track. “When “Sleep on the wing” came out, it felt like more than a passing lyric, it felt like a title, a theme.” He explains.
