‘Songs For Abandoned Tube Stations’ is an EP of songs by RELYCS, inspired by the sights, sounds and ghosts of the dozens of closed, unused, or only-travelled-through-at-speed Underground tube stations beneath the streets of London. The EP contains 3 tracks – ‘Aldwych Branch Line’, ‘Lord’s Station’ and ‘Down Street’, recorded by me (Pulco), the brilliant Adam Leonard and chiptune master Stephen McLeod Blythe (AKA Unexpected Bowtie) respectively. The music travels from complex and highly evocative subterranean soundscapes, past Adam Leonard’s dark, dripping platform of ominous organ music and finally terminates with Stephens wonderfully simple yet affective chip tune Nintendo Gameboy programming, like the music from some uncreated ‘Super Mario London Underground’ game.
Format for the release is limited edition C30 Magnetic Tape, each with 3 full colour numbered postcards, a credits sheet + a digital download. The tapes come in stickered, numbered slip cases and there will be 30 copies only.!!!
