via-FLAT FIVE RECORDS.
Yore is the exciting new release from multi-instrumentalist and producer Callum Brown. Callum has been a part of the East-London music/art scene for years, previously playing in Mint Field, Josefin Ohrn, Fews and Ulrika Spacek.
He is sharing his debut track and video ‘Bon Mot’ which features White Flower’s Katie Drew and sees a fresh spin on 90’s guitar, the video was created with Vicious Collective.
Speaking about the new single Bon Mot, Callum Brown had this to say:
"I wrote the shell of the idea a few years back, it had quite a 90s guitar feel & energy which I was drawn to uponrevisiting it. I just felt I could put a fresh spin on it.
I added 808s & arpeggiated synths then tracked live drums - this really brought the song to life.
I reached out to Katie from White Flowers as I thought she would be a great match for the track
& the first thing she sent me fitted perfectly so it all felt quite seamless!
I love the simplicity of it, the pop structure & playfulness of the song."
Yore is due to release the full S/T album in November 2020 featuring artists include: Mellah, Nuha Ruby Ra, Black Gold Buffalo, Rakel Leifsdottir of Dream Wife, Katie Drew of White flowers, Panacea, Rusalka and Milan Monk of Haha sounds collective.

Livingin the Hackney wick art space known as Vicious Collective, Callum has managed to assemble an eclectic mix of guest artists who feature on the record.
The album is a celebration of indie collaboration akin to Broken Social Scene, the "cut and paste" aesthetic of Unkle/King Krule and the dreamlike nostalgia of Deerhunter/Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
Created over several months in Hackney's Wilton Way studios Callum enlisted the help of Ulrika Spacek's Syd Kemp (Thurston Moore, Vanishing twin, Spiritualized) to co-produce and record the 10 track album.
Clocking in at just over 35 minutes the self-titled LP opens with a wall of shoegaze ascending synths and closes on a fever dream of delayed guitars and ethereal vocals; the perfect disparate soundtrack to the tumultuous times we live in.
