W&W015 // Component#4 – Barbed Wire Sunday // OUT NOW

After months of preparation, we can finally announce the release of the debut 12″ EP from Component#4, AKA Mike Rowley (live member of epic45 and My Autumn Empire). The EP is available from Norman Records and available digitally now via iTunes etc.

[soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/33773452″ params=”show_artwork=true&show_comments=true&auto_play=false&color=000000″ width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

Born and raised in the post-industrial, post-Thatcher remnants of the Black Country region of England, Rowley draws on the decaying factories, vandalised bus shelters and litter-strewn canals which formed the landscape of his childhood. A multi instrumentalist, Rowley was formerly the drummer for postpunk/ math-rock group The Arm and has contributed and collaborated with Wayside and Woodland artists epic45 and My Autumn Empire.

The EP, ‘Barbed Wire Sunday’, was inspired by two recent trips to Berlin, where the juxtaposition of crumbling ruins and pristine new developments inspired Rowley to create new soundscapes upon his return to England.

Degraded, sparse rhythms and bass contrast with clean, melodic synths and drum pads, capturing the contradictory, restless nature of the built environment. This six track EP will certainly appeal to fans of Burial, early Warp records and New Order.

The 12” vinyl edition also comes with a download code which gives access to a remixed version of the EP, with each track reworked by W&W artists such as Charles Vaughan, E.L Heath, Field Harmonics and Ben Holton – as well as close friends Fieldhead (Gizeh Records) and Arc Vel (First Fold Records).

Click here to purchase via Norman Records.

There is also a very limited quantity of 20 special collectors sets which contain an exclusive red W&W t-shirt, 12″ EP and download code, a unique playing card used in the shoot of the Component#4 video we posted a few week ago, plus a W&W badge and sticker. These can be purchased now from our Big Cartel shop, but are strictly limited and will sell fast – so be quick folks. These will be shipped week commencing 12th November. *As with the My Autumn Empire set, this pack will not contain any extra music from the version onsale via Norman Records. *

Official Video for Component#4

We are all very excited at W&W to be able to post this brand new video for Component#4, whose EP will be release on 12″ vinyl and download on 29/10/12 via Wayside and Woodland. More details on the release and accompanying collectors set within the next week.
