Shadow. Hot breath. Flash of Knives. Glasgow-based artist and musician Douglas Morland's solo guise as Older Lover is a smoky, noirish take on psychedelia, with glam stylings and dub sonics thrown in for good measure. Both the flickering silhouettes and magical lustre of the silver screen and the spooky hold on the imagination of the pulsing, saturated analogue signals of the immediately pre-digital cold war period, are as much influences as any musical genre, past or present.
Recorded and produced with a nod to the grain and patina of these past eras, via the homemade waywardness of Swell Maps or The Homosexuals, the Older Lover EP is an astute and compelling exercise in dark and seductive rock n roll.
