Eyeliner Shares Title Track To New Album 'Drop Shadow' + Video 'Keep Calm'

Eyeliner, the instrumental 'vaporwave' project of Aotearoa electronic pioneer Luke Rowell (Disasteradio), has revealed to the world a mouthwatering first taste of his long awaited fourth studio album Drop Shadow, launching in mid-August via Ohio-based imprint Orange Milk Records. Released alongside a magnificent CGI video for 'Keep Calm' created by Rowell himself, the peppy title track welcomes fans and newcomers alike back to Eyeliner's world like a smiling mascot for an omnipresent global mega-corp – nailing the landing with zag-zagging grooves and cartoony (yet streetwise) avant-funk flair to spare.

The atmospheric and reflective 'Keep Calm' gestures towards emotional territory explored throughout Drop Shadow, with a suite of tracks on the record expressing the theme of "personal loss and caring for a sick loved one". Immersing viewers in a labyrinth of sounds and sensations, the visuals for 'Keep Calm' offer a meditative tableau of grand piano and Toyota Prius with floating rotating saxophone, elevated from humble coffee-sipping beginnings to galactic heights (recalling the much-studied scene from Godard's Two or Three Things I Know About Her) via the most glorious of solos. Experience both new tunes here and keep it locked for the whole shebang dropping this winter...

'Drop Shadow' releases digitally and on limited edition cassette on Friday 14th August via Orange Milk Records, preorders are available here.
