Following the release of his critically acclaimed album Eleania, Sam Shepherd – better known as electronic artist Floating Points – is already gearing up to release a new EP, Kuiper, on 5th August via Pluto. Having already shared the title track of the new collection, he’s now revealed a new song, ‘For Marmish Part II.’ Spanning nearly quarter of an hour, it’s a blissful, chilled experience that gradually introduces a variety of jazz overtones, percussion and synths to its looping, hypnotic base. Listen below.
Speaking of the EP, Shepherd commented: “I want to share this music because both sides reflect in two tracks where I was right at the start of the Elaenia project, right up to now – post LP release, playing live and going on the road with a band. I hope – like I feel – people will find a common strand in the hypnotic nature of both tracks.”
Floating Points is playing at Bluedot Festival in Cheshire tomorrow (Saturday 23rd July).
