We’re excited to announce the official release of Conversation Arctique the new EP by US-based dreampop artist REW<<. The EP is available now for download and streaming via Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify and other good 3rd party stores. REW<<‘s music is available for licensing for film, tv, games and more through Hidden Shoal.
In direct contrast to his eclectic, pop-inflected albums Departeures and Olive Skinned, Silver Tongued Sirens Sing Swan Songs, Conversation Arctique is a sparse, beautiful EP of succinct pieces for piano and strings that trace elegant melodic arcs like breath in cold air. Akin to the work of Julien Marchal, Conversation Arctique is a work of magical minimalism.
“REW<<’s Olive Skinned, Silver Tongued Sirens Sing Swan Songs is a fantastically varied, moving, and imaginative opus, and it deserves to be celebrated.” – The Big Takeover
REW<< is the solo moniker of Ryan E. Weber, who originally hails from the Western shores of Lake Michigan.
