Ethan P. Flynn Shares Details Of Universal Deluge
Ethan P. Flynn’s new album Universal Deluge marks a significant shift for the multi-artist. Known for his work with David Byrne, Celeste, and Black Country, New Road. He also co-wrote several songs and performed on FKA twigs’ album Magdalene and most recently collaborated with esteemed experimental producer Vegyn on the single “Superstition”.
Created over a three-year period, Universal Deluge showcases the depth and breadth of Ethan P. Flynn’s distinctive, multi-faceted production methods. The EP plunges into the darker side of experimental pop. Combining electronic experimentation with stripped-back acoustics, it is a further example of the swirling, psychedelic lo-fi masterpieces Flynn conjures. A sound which has seen him described “as great as Bowie, I’m just waiting for the world to see it… he’s a legend in the making” by UK rapper Slowthai.
Speaking on the newly released single “Father of Nine”, Ethan P. Flynn says “This song is about complex family relationships between people who haven’t met each other. It isn’t necessarily a love song at all. There’s an urge to feel a kind of affinity with your ancestors but a lot of them were probably really terrible people. I was also thinking about how many weddings had to happen in the past for a person to exist- like an incomprehensible amount of weddings led to your birth.”
“I’ve never really finished anything before – it feels crazy,” says Ethan P. Flynn of his debut EP (and first fully formed body of work) Universal Deluge.
