Equador – Singer Bo Bruce and producer/musician Henry Binns of Zero 7 – return with the first track from their upcoming EP, the follow up to their 2016 debut album Bones of Man.
Featuring three tracks, Belly Up, lead single Treble Oh, and Prisoner, the EP is an immersive fusion of 90s downtempo ambience and minimal electronica held together with Bruce’s distinctive vocals.
With a wonderfully atmospheric video filmed on location in a deserted ex Ministry of Defence building near Weston Super Mare, Treble Oh is an absolute gift for any admirers of Binns’ unsurpassed work as one half of Mercury-nominated duo Zero 7. It has some of hallmarks that are so familiar for fans of that earlier work – most notably the warm, ethereal and ‘light touch’ production that is his forte – but is developed in an entirely fresh direction to mesmerising effect.
Bo Bruce and Henry Binns first met in 2013 whilst working on tracks for Bo’s top ten debut album and immediately hit it off as a writing duo. In 2015 the pair holed up in the Zero 7 studio, writing and recording Equador’s debut album.
Treble Oh is out now, with the EP Tribal War set for release on 16 November.
