S.A.D. Piano Solo”, the piano version of “S.A.D. STORM AND DRUGS”, is out today on all digital platforms via Sony Music Masterworks and Artist First. The EP contains five songs from “S.A.D. STORM AND DRUGS”, the album released by Dardust in January 2020, and the previously unreleased track “Outside”.

“It kinda felt necessary to strip those songs to a bare form with a simpler piano top line.  It is a part of me, I’ve always been fascinated by the fact that some electronic music could be just so melodic if stripped bare. You could consider it the equivalent of Marcel Duchamp’ The Bride Stripped Bare for Piano. If electronic music is the high, the piano is the coming down. Every high has its Valium after all.

It does bring me back to the lonely purity I felt when these tracks were created during my travels to London and Edinburgh. Now they are over to you and I hope you enjoyed hearing them, in their innocence, as much as I did writing them”.

The release of the EP will be accompanied by the video release of “Without You”, shot at the Museo del Novecento in Milan. WATCH HERE
