Open youself to the idea of abduction! Flying Saucer Attack return to release Instrumentals 2015, their first album in 15 years on Friday the 17th of July 2015. Comprised of 15 fresh David Pearce solo guitar performances recorded in characteristically lo-fi manner at home, on tape and CD-R, Instrumentals 2015 is an album that will appeal both to FSA diehards and those wholly unfamiliar with the outfit's recorded output.
The 15 tracks on Instrumentals 2015 present an impressionistic narrative which transports the listener through the excoriating dronescapes and rueful introspection of the album's early pieces to the more redemptive cadences of its closing half. Given its sense of momentum, maintained through Pearce's thoughtful sequencing, this is an album that should be experienced in its entirety, the better to appreciate its deliberate emotional arc.
In celebration, director Peter Strickland has shot his first ever music video for "Instrumental 7," after meeting Dave and using the FSA song 'Seven Seas' in his recently released film, The Duke Of Burgundy. Watch:
"My first ever music video for a band that I'm very glad to see the return of. Within the Great Plains of Hungary, one can almost hear this music resonating far away in the endless expanse. Three of us in the flatfield for three days with Flying Saucer Attack on our headphones and trying to remember how to use light meters whilst observing a world that mankind is gradually departing from. " - Peter Strickland
