East Londoners Human Interest release ‘Empathy Lives In Outer Space’ (EP), out today via Nice Swan Records (Sports Team, Pip Blom, English Teacher).
Partnering with the cult label for their second extended release, the emerging outfit have already revealed lead singles ‘Step On’, ‘All My Friends’ and ‘Grounded’, all of which having attracted substantial press support (The Sunday Times, Rough Trade, The Forty-Five). Whilst on the live front, the group have ticked off prestigious slots with Self Esteem, Dave Rowntree (Blur), Hinds, Vlure, HighSchool and Tribes, as well as gaining multiple spins on the BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq), Radio X (playlisted) and Sirius FM airwaves.
Speaking ahead of their EP release, which will be accompanied by a launch show at The Waiting Room, London on November 29th, the band revealed:
“‘Empathy Lives in Outer Space’ feels like we’ve locked into our identity as Human Interest. The name of the EP came from an image of the world’s first untethered freefall in outer space.
We found it beautiful how alone that person looked, whilst knowing that there were people there out of the picture who were ready to bring him back into safety.
We became really obsessed with the idea of a toddler being in that same situation, and how striking that would be.
Upon leaning into this new imagery, the name ‘Empathy Lives in Outer Space’ came about and everything clicked. You need space to really appreciate empathy, and comprehend your place
in the grand scheme of things".
Human Interest’s ‘Empathy Lives In Outer Space (EP) is out now via Nice Swan Records and available on all digital platforms.
