“Mind-blowing” - XLR8R                                  …Recent praise for Nostalgia 77

“An Angel With No Halo” is the new single from Nostalgia 77. Out 9th December - ahead of the full album, “A Journey Too Far”, due in February - this stirring slice of psychedelic pop-noir sees the London based producer, guitarist, songwriter and bandleader further developing his creative partnership with German singer Josa Peit.

Adding to this first, eagerly anticipated taste of new music, this single also brings a Prince Fatty Dub remix; and the promo includes a Radio Edit, as well as Instrumental and A Cappella versions.

Nostalgia 77 main man Benedic Lamdin is hugely in demand as a producer and engineer, with work for a diverse array of artists as well as his own studio albums and side-projects (the most recent of which, Nostalgia 77 and the Monster, led to heavy BBC 6Music play and a live session for Cerys Matthews). His latest A-list assignment has been with Jamie Cullum, a relationship that has evolved from the latter’s admiration and support for Nostalgia 77 on his BBC Radio 2 show. Having produced two tracks on 'Momentum' (Island), Cullum’s current crossover LP featuring Roots Manuva, he has also recently recorded a complete album with the star, set for release in 2014.

“An Angel With No Halo” finds Lamdin melding inspirations from the English folk and psychedelic scene to the ‘60s orchestral pop of Gainsbourg and Axelrod. Building on the strides he made as a songwriter on his 2011 album ‘The Sleepwalking Society’, this single blends a poetic, highly visual lyricism with his much lauded skills and instincts as a composer. “Are we still ourselves if a key aspect of internal or external life goes missing… The unemployed, the bereft, the homeless?” muses Lamdin, of the song’s core existential query, which considers the feeling of being unsure of one’s place in the world. The inventive instrumental section – rising, falling and spinning out in gripping fashion - explores the threat we face when estranged from ourselves. Deft production, deceptive simplicity and Peit’s delicate yet rich vocals lend the song an irresistible, enigmatic pull.

Revered UK producer of funked-out reggae, Prince Fatty (Hollie Cook/Mr Bongo), weaves the scintillating instrumental into a pulsating and warm, dubby haze, punctuated by the crystal clear vocal refrain of the chorus.

Nostalgia 77’s last studio album introduced him to a wider audience than ever, by dint of refreshing blues, folk and psychedelic influences and the decision to complete his band with the charismatic Josa Peit – the perfect interpreter of his songs - where he had previously featured various guests. Media support abounded, with radio play including Huey Morgan, Guy Garvey, Nemone, Gilles Peterson, The Selector, Gideon Coe, and Don Letts; national radio playlisting in the US, France and elsewhere, and major features including The Telegraph.

Aside from her work with the Nostalgia 77 band, Josa Peit is a rising star of the German music scene, with increasing international recognition. She has recently been collaborating with renowned German beatmaker Dexter, and has also just seen the release of her first self-produced track "Waste" on the “Muscle Tuff" compilation from hot Berlin techno/house collective Brandt Brauer Frick’s The Gym label; with more solo outings in the pipeline.
