New Music Alert!
Berlin's dark electro-pop virtuoso Thomas Azier has announced the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed Hylas EPs with his debut full-length, aptly titled Hylas, the final installment of the Hylas trilogy. It lands March 10.
That's a lotta Hylas.
The album is lush, cacophonous mix of Azier's signature forward-thinking production, and the evocative vocals he's become synonymous with.
Listen to the title track below.
Some more Azier intel: Thomas Azier was born in the Netherlands, but relocated to Berlin at age 19. After hundreds of sketches and pre-productions on his computer, Thomas Azier eventually started to lay the final touches on his debut in the Fall of 2012. He set up his studio in an old East German factory where the church bells for the Kremlin used to be manufactured. That old factory proved just the right place for the truly industrial twist on pop music Azier was looking for.
His sound bridges gaps between cultures as well. Combining factory sounds derived from the Dutch gabber and hardcore scene, the German electronic scene and the epic and profound emotions you would find in French artists, he may well have defined the sound of European Pop Music in 2014.
