Watch stunning videos for tracks ‘Mossy Cyphol’, ‘Subarctic Baltasound’ and ‘Gloup’.

Glasgow’s Numbers label has announced the release of the debut album from Scottish producer North Sea Dialect, which arrives on November 9.

According to a press release, the album explores “the serenity of rural freedom, the power of the sea, and the collapse of industry” through a dense musical world of “uneasy ambience, shimmering distortion, subdued rhythm and propulsive melody.”

Inspired by a move from Glasgow to the east coast of Scotland, the album’s 10 tracks are designed to be listened to in one continuous sitting and feature audio recorded during his time in transit.

The announcement arrives with three short films to accompany tracks ‘Mossy Cyphol’, ‘Subarctic Baltasound’ and ‘Gloup’, which feature stunning nautically-themed archive footage and strange, poetic closed captions.
