Press release:
Limited, 4-track 45 vinyl ep which contains four tracks of 60's-tinged-psych-pop with distinct echoes of the Zombies and the Left Banke, while at the same time retaining a very NOW sound - 4 wonderful tracks of hand crafted pop to ease you into Spring.

Swiss one-man band Balduin has quietly released a string of albums and EPs since 2001, the contents of which run the gamut from dreamy electronica and lo-fi experimental pop to self-composed harpsichord recitals. This new four-tracker, his first outing since 2012, mines the deep well of British ’60s pop-psych with the skill of a master; it’s all there in the frighteningly authentic cover of Boeing Duveen & The Beautiful Soup’s ‘Jabberwock’.

Balduin treads a similar path to the one that Jacco Gardner has spent two years wearing a deep groove into, but employs a wider arsenal of sounds to colour his creations. ‘Waves, Stars And Moon’ layers Mellotron strings, chimes and finger clicks over a pretty acoustic guitar snapshot. And, on opener ‘Mirror, Mirror’, he sounds uncannily like Billy Nicholls.
