2021 saw the release of the Cables Rewired
EP, acoustic reworking of 2 tracks from Cables together with the
Manchester-based Untold Orchestra. Now comes a second EP: ZEAL. Recorded during the throws of lockdown, this unique project overcame the challenges of recording an orchestra remotely, and inspired by the pursuit of opportunity out of adversity.
Featuring Jonathan Harvey on bass, Marijus Aleksa on drums, alongside the Untold Orchestra, ZEAL EP sees the return of Laurance’s better known aesthetic, combining symphonic melody and texture alongside hard-hitting grooves, swirling synths, and his unmistakable and unique piano sound.
