DARCY BAYLIS - INTIMACY & ISOLATION (LP)

by Darcy Baylis

$8.00

Intimacy & Isolation is a voluminous journey of work that expands with each listen, traversing drum & bass, UK hardcore, vintage house and techno, all tightly wrapped within future R&B leaning song structures and Baylis’ spacious vocals.

Written across a period of 12 months in transit - from bus trips in Eastern Europe, to snowy apartments in Brooklyn, friend’s couches in Sydney and freezing post-club mornings in Berlin, consider Intimacy & Isolation an auditory ‘a year in the life’.

As a closely watched high achiever, who by the end of high school had a 7-inch single, a full-length record under acclaimed project NAMINE, completed a live national tour and remixed artists like Oscar Key Sung, 2017 sees Baylis transcend a step further with his progressive collection of self-produced and recorded material.

Undertaking studies in composition at Melbourne’s Victorian College of the Arts, Baylis continues to expand his repertoire of reference, citing the likes of everyone from Bjork, Metro Boomin’ and Steve Reich as personal heroes. Following previous EP releases, How Can I Live?/Ecstasy, and Envelopes, Intimacy & Isolation pushes once more against traditional house and techno framework, to explore present themes of personal conflict and identity.
