Cuts, the audio-visual project of composer and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr, releases his debut album ‘A Gradual Decline’ through Village Green Recordings. Available on double vinyl and CD with printed inners featuring artwork photography taken by Cuts himself in Iceland.

Summoning 11 widescreen, electronic compositions in response to global political and environmental breakdown, ‘A Gradual Decline’ addresses the planet’s current fragility using actual field recordings of ice collapsing from glaciers. Weaving these momentary, dramatic events directly into the DNA of the music, Cuts has sculpted rhythmic elements out of geological transformation.

A stark sense of urgency permeates ‘A Gradual Decline’. At times chaotic and alarming, the album’s siren-like tones and volatile, stuttered beats converge with synthetic gales of melody and glacial percussion. Elsewhere, the sense of precariousness is subtler, enveloped in gaseous chords that swell and evaporate, ethereal and dense guitars and distant vocals – all hallmarks of previous Cuts material - here honed into a concise, conceptual set.
