London producer/artist Subculture announces EP ‘Mauve Rain via Twisted Hearts Records. Drawing inspiration from musical luminaires such as Beck, Tame Impala and Mura Masa, Subculture fearlessly embraces the unconventional, merging Indie sensibilities, Psych-Rock soundscapes, Post-Punk attitude and cutting-edge Electronic. The 6-track EP explores themes of ambition, death, grief and existential purpose while still maintaining a light-hearted edge and asserting itself as the producer/artists’s most personal work to date. Joining forces with some of his favourite alternative artists from his wide base of collaborators (some featuring and some on writer/backing vocal duties) including Grand Pax, Mac Wetha, Chelou, Deema and Connie Constance; the release follows the intro single to the project, ‘HYDRO’ Ft. Chelou.
When speaking about the EP, Subculture says: “During the process of making this project I suffered a few things in my personal life namely the loss of my mother earlier this year who I was very close with. Although not my original intention, the project became a diary to my grief and my personal concerns as well as the circularity of life and that feeling of coming through the tunnel at the end when you start to see colour again. There’s a split in feeling when producing for so many other artists while also producing my own music that can sometimes leave me in a confusing place but the catharsis of making this record helped me get through some really dark times. This all happened over a period where I was trying to lean into more guitar-oriented genres of music and also experimenting more broadly with my song-writing.”
