    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    UnicaZürn combine the considerable talents of Stephen Thrower (Coil: Cyclobe) on keyboards and reeds, and David Knight (Danielle Dax: Shock Headed Peters: Lydia Lunch) on guitar and keyboards. Together, they create a deeply layered neu-kosmiche. Their sound is birthed in improvisation, then edited, reconfigured and polished to an obsidian gleam.

    ‘A viscerally organic strain of proto-ambient.’ - The Quietus.

    ‘Impressively ambitious, harrowing and complex.’ - Brainwashed.

    ‘Knight and Thrower prove themselves to be expert soundscapists of the highest order.’ - International Times

    UnicaZürn have released 5 critically acclaimed albums, featuring expansive instrumental pieces that can clock in at anything between eight and thirty minutes. This single is a unique opportunity to hear them working ‘in miniature’.

    A-side ‘Fuse Fire Vortex’ sees the duo assisted by David J. Smith (Guapo, Stargazer’s Assistant) on electronic percussion and Sam Warren on fuzz bass. The result is a slinky and seductive composition, wherein Knight paints mournful streaks of guitar over the perpetually uncoiling synth lines. With echoes of Tangerine Dream, this is quite simply the most immediate and catchy recording UnicaZürn have ever committed to vinyl.

    The B-side, the exquisitely titled ‘Blood Comes Singing’, is a more cold blooded affair: a brooding, majestic work with rich undercurrents of unease. With its stately keyboard arrangement and what sound like, but almost certainly aren’t, keening violins, ‘Blood Comes Singing’ could almost be the soundtrack to the opening scenes of a chic Spanish horror film circa 1979.

    The single is released in a strictly limited edition of 100, on lathe cut, hand etched 7” transparent vinyl. The cover is graced by a haunting and previously unpublished painting by Danielle Dax. Heaven’s Lathe is dedicated to bringing out the highest quality lathe cut seven inch singles, featuring both influential artists and emerging performers in a range of genres.

A grand? Not really. With this release we can't actually offer you the digital files. But BC rules mean we have to put a price here. Sorry.
