Holy Spring follows Laurence Pike’s 2018 debut solo album Distant Early Warning. Laurence is one third of Szun Waves, who released their second album New Hymn To Freedom last year to critical acclaim. The name of the album is beautifully ambiguous, evoking a wellspring, but also rebirth, and more besides. It sounds constantly, effervescently fresh, just as it should when its creation was a series of surprises to its own creator. Whether as part of PVT, Triosk or Szun Waves, or collaborating with Liars, legendary jazz pianist Mike Nock, DD Dumbo or the mighty Bill Callahan, he has long been a responsive musician, for whom sensitive listening leads to spontaneous invention. Every motion, from the most minuscule flicker to a primal groove, is an expression of what’s happening around him. Which is precisely how he, and the ensembles he’s been part of, have been able to navigate so deftly between the poles of the familiar. Pike’s work has always skirted around electronica, spiritual jazz, post-rock and many other recognisable sounds, without ever converging on one single style or resorting to obvious fusions.

Limited Edition LP on Transparent Blue Vinyl.

Laurence Pike - Holy Spring is currently priced at a special preorder rate and will revert to full price on release. The release date of 17th May 2019 is estimated and subject to change.
