And he’s back. Two years after the release of his excellent debut LP, 2013’s “Years Not Living”, Greek singer/producer Panagiotis Melidis, aka Larry Gus, returns to DFA with his second full-length album “I Need New Eyes”, set to arrive on October 2. The new eight-track record is said to employ “clearer songwriting structures”, and its title is based on a supposed quote by Proust, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
Today, we’re treated to a stream of the album’s first single “NP-Complete”. Clocking in at nearly seven minutes, the track finds Larry Gus doing what he does best: delivering a groove-filled tune laced with slow-burning, psychedelic textures, bright melodies, falsetto vocals, and infectious layers of percussion. Blast it above.
Larry Gus’ new album “I Need New Eyes” will drop on October 2 on DFA. Pre-order it here.
