ORE- BELATEDLY is to be released on 2xLP and digitally and features collaborations from Khyam Allami, Beck Baker, Sophie Cooper, Thomas Stone and Kazuyuki Kishino (KK NULL).
ORE is the project of Sam Underwood. Belatedly in his words:
The title is derived from the fact that I failed to complete this album the first time around. I started it as a gift to my father when he was diagnosed with lung cancer in late 2014. But I failed to complete it before his death 8 months later. I subsequently aimed to complete it but found that too hard...so had to start the whole thing afresh. This is now ready, Belatedly.
Aged 35 – the average age at which fewer cells regenerate than die – Sam Underwood left his previous job to pursue his dream of being a musician. He also put down his guitar, intent on exploring what he hoped would be a rich sound world; a compound formed of doom metal and low brass. ORE was formed.
For me, playing the tuba was the first time I really felt a connection – in every sense – with a musical instrument. An extension of my own pipework; my resonant frequency. A truly physical instrument to play.
|Expected release date is 24th Nov 2017|
