Haunts - A Lack of Empathy
£7.99

Haunts are a collective of musicians based in the south east of England which began life as a solo venture for ex-Human Future guitarist, Phillip Short. Over the course of recording this first EP, Phillip sought help from a range of musicians including some former Human Future members, most notably Kurt Phillips on drums and bassist Luke Booth who appears on the opening track 'Creep Pulse'.

Haunts' objective is to create densely layered, multi-timbral atmospheric music and saw this three track EP as an opportunity to guide the listener on their own interpretive journey. 'A Lack Of Empathy' is half an hour in length, allowing the songs to naturally progress, breathe and gradually develop tension until capitulating with dramatic crescendos. Of particular note are Dalma Gebe's excellent violin accompaniments that help create some of the most thrilling moments of the release.

Recording for the project began in April 2016, with drums recorded by Lewis Johns at The Ranch Production House in Southampton. Since then, Phillip and his producer Pete Long have recorded in theirs and their friend's home studios before handing the mixing and mastering responsibilities over to Tom Hill. Recording at home allowed Phillip and Pete the time to really experiment with different tones and subtleties that went on to give the EP its unique sound.

A Lack Of Empathy's release is paired with a music video for 'Creep Pulse' which is made up of slide film being projected on various textured surfaces. This technique was also used to create Joe Page's artwork, and as a bonus for anyone who purchases a copy of the CD, they will be sent a unique slide that was used in the making of the artwork and music video.
