Kevin Martin’s work has been tremendously important for me over the years. He has been a source of constant astonishment when it comes to the power of low end music. From his time in God, through his Techno Animal project with Justin Broadrick and into his work as The Bug, Martin’s sonic explorations have never ceased to inspire.
Sirens is his very first solo edition. It’s an utterly personal journey through the trauma and optimism he experienced during, and following, the birth of his first child. It’s harrowingly beautiful music, the kind of sound that reflects sonic affect at its most pure. I am so very pleased to be sharing it with you.
