‘New EP’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest EP release. Up next is George Turner whose latest EP came out earlier this year, and who is opening for Le1f later his month at Meow.

When/where was the new EP recorded?
I recorded this EP over 5 weeks at the start of 2017 while living out in Eastbourne. The environment really contributed to my work effort. My studio was in a room with large windows which gave an incredible view of the entire harbour.

Who produced/engineered the EP? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
I recorded and produced the entire EP. I always get too controlling when working in bands so being able to play all the instruments and record/produce it all myself was very important to the process.

Did the shorter format of an EP give you the option to experiment in
any way with your sound or with different forms of song-writing?

Yes, this was my second EP of the year, It was the first time in years I had picked the Guitar up again. Gave me a chance to make Rock which was the genre I somewhat grew up on.

Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
Not really, Tr707 drum machine was the majority of drums. Other than that I changed guitars almost every song.

Is there a particular track or theme that the EP was formed around?
I was feeling alienated by the internet, everyone seemed so involved in the social world and I felt out of place. Falling behind almost so I wanted to write an EP that allowed me to explore the Internet in new ways.

Where do you see the EPs place in growing an audience online? Do you see it as a progression towards an album or a separate entity?
I definitely see it as a progression towards an album. I am very excited to write my first album, but I’m also terrified of not writing it as best I can. That’s why EPs have been so important to me.

Which digital platforms is it available on?
Full EP is on Bandcamp and Youtube but there are singles on Soundcloud. I will be putting them on iTunes and spotify soon.

What kind of promotion do you do for EP releases?
I’ve been playing plenty of shows this year, so we just did a release show with a full band a couple months after it came out.
