Ground-breaking novel 1984 by George Orwell was revisited by musical project To Kill A Nation during lockdown, where the phrase ‘The Destruction of Words’ called out to him, and was selected as an ideal title for his new EP.

Commencing three years ago, the Billingham producer’s canon already boasts an EP, Homeland, and debut album This Is All We Have. There’s a wide range of influences cited, including New Order, Nick Drake and Bill Callahan, and a keenness to soak up and interpret as many genres as possible. All recorded at his home, The Destruction of Words is To Kill A Nation’s most personal creation and a reflection of his mood captured in art.

Starting with a nod to Air’s percussion, As The Sun Goes Down focuses on its brass leading to the denser arrangement of The Darker Side Of You, with its brooding guitar work and strings. Touch The Light shows its understated style, while Hold The Fear has an animalistic feel. The instrumental EP ends with the aptly titled We Are Falling Apart, layering samples and alien-like effects. All five tracks together present a luxuriant ambiance.

To Kill A Nation releases his new EP, The Destruction of Words, on 28th August
