Listen to a new single, ‘Night Music’, now.

Experimental pianist Kelly Moran will return to Warp with a new EP.

Origin is an acoustic follow-up to her brilliant 2018 Warp debut Ultraviolet, and, according to the label, is a tribute “to the drive, determination and perseverance of Yuzuru Hanyu, the world-renowned figure skater from Japan who Moran considers one of her idols.”

The seven stripped-back songs featured on the EP were developed during the writing sessions from which Ultraviolet emerged, as Moran herself explains, “these recordings show firsthand my musical discoveries in real-time for when I was having my major creative breakthrough”.

Origin arrives via Warp on May 17.  Check out the cover art and tracklist below.


01. ‘Reflexive Music (Autowave)’
02. ‘Helix II’
03. ‘Halogen (Una Corda)’
04. ‘Love Birds, Night Birds, Devil-Birds’
05. ‘Water Music (Piano Solo)’
