Douglas Dare announces new EP 'Caroline/If Only'

 Douglas Dare announces new EP Caroline/If Only  picture
"If I knew I were alive, I could do so much better. If I knew what I had, then I could use it more wisely. If only I’d known before then I’d be in a better place already. If only."  

London-based singer-songwriter Douglas Dare releases new EP, following on from his debut album 'Whelm'. Named after album track 'Caroline' and new track 'If I Knew I Were Alive', it also features remixes by fellow label mate Ryan Lee West aka Rival Consoles and Houndstooth’s own electronic producer Ross Tones aka Throwing Snow.  

"The recording has this demo quality which I really enjoy. I love how revealing a demo can be, it seems to expose the fundamental ideas the songwriter had and the basic quality of the recording is very revealing. One of my favourite records is PJ Harvey’s ‘4 Track Demos’ where the songs are so stripped back that you can appreciate the finest details." – Douglas Dare

'Caroline/If Only' will be released on a Limited Edition 10” Vinyl and Download via Erased Tapes on September 22, 2014 and can be pre ordered from here.

Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen will release their unique Nordic electronic sounds in album size on October 27.

After dropping several tracks and performing at select festivals throughout the years, the duo dedicated the year 2014 to explore the area in-between Ólafur’s more acoustic, piano-based solo work and Janus’s synth-heavy electro pop, with their collaborative electronic project Kiasmos.

'Full of melancholy-frosted electronics and emotive swells of classical piano, the new single from Nordic duo Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen is a delicate, icy slowburn' – NME Track Premiere 

'Brasher, braver and more raw, ‘Burnt’ seems to exude glacial coolness and heat at the same time' – DIY
