Brian Eno returns to the drums between the bells

Brian Eno returns to the drums between the bells Brian Eno and Rick Holland‘s album from earlier this year – The Drums Between the Bells – was a unique experiment looking at the craft of poetry and songwriting through the prism of contemporary electronic music. With music composed by Eno and Holland’s words performed by a kaleidoscopic cast of amateurs and professional singers, it was a patchy but nonetheless valiant experiment. Now a series of recordings that didn’t make it on to the album are being released as a companion EP called ‘Panic of Looking’. Due to be released in November on Warp, there are a further six tracks to enjoy. Stream the title track below.

1. In the Future
2. Not a Story
3. Panic of Looking
4. If these Footsteps
5. Watch a single swallow in a thermal sky, and try to fit its motion, or figure why it Flies
6. West Bay
