“Chain” by Leo Abrahams

‘Chain’ is the 2nd single to be taken from producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams the forthcoming album, ‘Daylight’ (to be released on the 20th of November via the record label Lo Recordings) and features vocals from his frequent studio sparring partner, and one of the most influential figures of electronic music, Brian Eno.

One of the album’s many highlights, ‘Chain’ sees Eno’s cut-up vocals collide with Abraham’s intricate style of guitar playing, ricocheting rhythms and sounds, and fractured electronics.

“The sound of Brian’s stacked vocals is, for me, one of the greatest sounds in music history,” Abrahams explains about the track. “On ‘Chain’ I originally sang all the vocals myself, but as a result of some unconscious plagiarism people started saying it reminded them of Brian! So I asked him to do it, and the end result is both of us singing together. He is very generous with his time and, luckily for me, loves to sing.”

‘Daylight’, Abrahams’ 5th album, and also a first for Lo Recordings, combines live contributions – Brian Eno features on Chain whilst Stella Mozgawa from Warpaint plays the drums throughout – with a significant dose of electronics to a jarring, remarkable effect.

Having previously experimented with every genre from folk and art rock to modern classical and electronica, and worked with everyone from Roxy Music to Pulp, Abrahams’ new album sees the Londoner bring his myriad influences together to produce music as inspirational as it is difficult to classify.
