about

Auclair's 'Semaphore' EP is a power quadrant of psych-pop doozies, drawing on the works of Broadcast, Anna Meredith, Colin Stetson and beyond.

Semaphore comes with four cosmic 'Second Signal' remixes, with Shape Worship recalibrating the spiralling prog of 'Mersea Mersea Me', Toby Gale scrubbing 'Here Come the Planes' clean as a whistle, and Anna Meredith draping Auclair's voice in bafflingly elasticated chords, before Sebastian Palomar flings us from this solar system into the inky deep.

"a delirious reconnaissance mission into the deeper spaces of synth pop music" - Q Magazine

"wonderfully odd yet contagious pop music ... a true nugget of joy" - Clash Magazine

"intuitive songwriting coupled with beguiling explorations in syncopation and odd harmonies that hang suspended like weightless jewels" - The 405

"four mirror versions, deformed, pepped up or lugubriously stretched out to form a weird echo of the original quartet ... The whole thing is quite bizarre and brilliant" - No Fear of Pop

"Slinky minimal soulpop with a psychedelic leftfield bent ... a very seductive mixture indeed" - Norman Records
