Carnivals - Humility
Featuring brand new tracks "Contrails' and 'French Tongues', 'Humility' delivers on the promise shown by the recently released 'Departners' and 'Last Off The Lake'. Championed by everyone from The Guardian to The Fader, as well as finding himself as a mainstay in the popular Hype Machine charts, Green's matured sound has found a devoted new fanbase, with the excitement around his future releases already building.
Green’s Carnivals project had seen just two releases in its short flight, with the recently released and highly acclaimed ‘Absences/Ino’ single proving to be a thrillingly ambitious turn in his crystalline, electronic pathway.
The ‘Humility’ EP finds Green in an even more confident mood, with ‘Departners’ acting as the EP’s emotional centrepiece. Emerging from the ether of strung-out, warped guitars and echoing vocals, rolling percussion brings the song to a gloriously uplifting crescendo.
In its entirety, ‘Humility’ proves Stewart Green to be one of the most exciting prospects in underground UK electronica today. Whether moving from softly-spoken musings of ‘French Tongues’, with its piano-led route moving through swathes of euphoric noise, or closer ‘Last Off The Lake’s’ uptempo and heart-warming soundscapes, the Carnivals sound carves its ornate niche with a devastating aplomb.
Green sums up the EP's modus operandi perfectly, saying, "Humility is the soundtrack to the Indian Ocean voyage I undertook last summer. Endless days spent with just the limitless sky and the relentless ocean underpin the inspiration to these tracks. Written half at sea and half at home, Humility embodies all the highs and lows of my adventure."
