Sharp Veins announces debut EP for Glacial Sound, Inbox Island

Alabama’s Sharp Veins will release his debut EP through Glacial Sound on May 11. 

Although this is Sharp Veins’ first record, he’s building up a reputation – he contributed to Boxed’s Boxed Vol. 1 comp under a past alias, and was picked as one of FACT’s club producers to watch earlier this year. He’s also popped up on radio a fair few times.

In Sharp Veins’ own words, “all the songs on Inbox Island describe (and live in) fictional places – idyllic, isolated locations far away from where I am now, all viewed through a digital prism. It’s escapism, or a brand of it heavily informed by all the fucking time I spend on the Internet searching for places I’d rather be.”

Dude, we feel you. If you’ve followed Sharp Veins so far then you can take a decent guess at what to expect: a combination of drone, ambience, Southern hip-hop and 140bpm club music that seems to sit everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
