With the Building A New Town EP, Gordon Chapman-Fox takes the Warrington-New Town Development Plan back to the early 1970s. Across these four tracks, Gordon adds guitars – played and sampled – to his usual epic sonic landscapes.
The new towns claimed the perfect suburban life in a green paradise with spacious parks and tree-lined boulevards. This chimed with post-hippy ideals of returning to nature and living The Good Life. The music filters through inspirations such as Pentangle, Mike Oldfield and early Tangerine Dream.
This EP will be released on the Castles In Space label on Friday, 25 August 2023, on a deluxe gold and autumn-leaves 12” splatter vinyl.
