Hidden Orchestra - Wingbeats
Label Tru Thoughts
21st October brings an eagerly awaited dose of new music from Hidden Orchestra on Tru Thoughts. On the 7-track “Wingbeats” EP the immersive lead track is accompanied by several of the original source compositions which fed into its creation, illuminating the fascinating intricacy of producer and composer Joe Acheson’s work. Rich in detail and character, field recordings intertwine with drums, percussion and eclectic instruments including piano, electro-harp, glockenspiel, Turkish mey and cello.
“Wingbeats” lands in the run-up to Hidden Orchestra’s appearance at the Royal Albert Hall (22nd Nov) with Roots Manuva, Andreya Triana and Henry Wu – a milestone that builds on a dizzying run of gigs this decade, from sellout AV shows at London’s Union Chapel and St John at Hackney to hundreds of headlines and festivals at home and abroad.
