Porcelain Raft Shares Free 'Pressed Flowers' EP
Published Jun 30, 2016Mauro Remiddi's last release as Porcelain Raft arrived with last year's Half Awake EP, but the dream pop project has just unveiled a surprise EP called Pressed Flowers.
The six-song set comprises a series of lost tracks that were originally recorded in London back in 2006. Since recently rediscovering the songs on a recorder that needed new batteries, Remiddi has decided to share the forgotten collection of songs.
"Back in 2006 I was living in London and had a portable recorder where I noted music ideas, mostly 30-sec long," the musician explained in a statement. "I'm sure it was 2006 because that year a whale was discovered swimming in the river Thames, in the centre of London. That is something hard to forget."
He continued: "To my surprise few weeks ago, in my place in Los Angeles, I saw the little recorder resting peacefully in one of my boxes. I put new batteries on and pressed play. It felt like opening a giant book filled with pressed flowers, with the colors still intact. In 10 days I wrote lyrics and turned the notes into songs."
Some of the final offerings are still pretty short in length, but it's an interesting glimpse into a specific point in Porcelain Raft's career, nonetheless. Listen to Pressed Flowers in its entirety below.
A press release also says to expect a proper Porcelain Raft album come 2017.
