Tropic of Cancer announces debut album for Blackest Ever Black, <i>Restless Idylls</i>, featuring production from Regis

Camella Lobo’s Tropic of Cancer project will release its debut album, Restless Idylls, on September 23.

Originally a duo of Lobo and Juan Mendez (a.k.a. Silent Servant of Sandwell District fame), Tropic of Cancer’s releases have been housed on Downwards, Mannequin, Sleeperhold and Blackest Ever Black, who will be releasing Restless Idylls. Additional production on the record is handled by Karl O’Connor, a.k.a. British techno stalwart Regis, while Dva Damas’ Taylor Birch now makes up part of the group’s live set-up.

A press release for the album describes its themes as “The usual: romance, devotion, pain and helplessness. Mixed up mortals struggling against the brute mechanics of fate, and proving unequal to the task. A forced retreat into private, precious idylls of longing, faith, mystery, even misery.”

The album’s release will be preceded by a single-sided 7″ version of ‘More Alone’ (streaming below), as well as a clear-vinyl repress of Sorrow of Two Blooms, an EP that Tropic of Cancer released on Blackest Ever Black several years ago.
