Baltic Fleet - The Dear One-CD-South

Baltic Fleet - The Dear One


Transitioning from the industrial backdrop of the last album 'Towers', The Dear One is set in the Pennine wilderness where an early 19th century diary of the same name is discovered providing the inspiration for a psychedelic tinged electronic soundscape. The new sound draws influence from the likes of New Order‰۪s Movement, Daft Punk‰۪s Homework, The KLF, Talking Heads, Boards of Canada and Tangerine Dream. The record documents a musical imagination of the lives of characters from the diary and blurs the lines between the diary and life here and now, touching on religion, loss and escapism. Baltic Fleet is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist and DIY producer Paul Fleming. The new album follows his critically acclaimed debut 'Baltic Fleet' and his second album 'Towers' which also made several End of Year Polls and was nominated for the Liverpool Music Awards Album of The Year. Baltic Fleet is also a winner of the annual Liverpool GIT Awards.åÊ
