British musicians Alfa Mist and Emmavie have remastered and re-released their 2014 collaborative project, Epoch, which now features the new song “Energy.”
“An ‘epoch’ (ee-pock) is a particular period of time in history or a person’s life,” Alfa Mist explained in an Instagram post. “Can’t think of a better word to describe how some music takes you back to where you were & what you were doing when you first heard it.”
On Epoch, the pair collaborated with a list of acclaimed contemporaries including revered bassist Pino Palladino’s son Rocco Palladino, who contributed the basslines on their new track. The project’s seventh track “Sing to the Moon” is a cover of a moving Laura Mvula song from her 2013 album of the same name, while “Fly Away” was produced by Odd Future ghostwriter Dornik Leigh.
“Working with [Alfa Mist] on this EP allowed me to access a more vulnerable and poetic side of myself,” Emmavie shared on Instagram. “Alfa is just incredible and I don’t know what to compare it to but when I listen to these songs, I’m transported back to the moments in my life that inspired these lyrics.”
Alfa Mist is set to release another body of work this week with fellow Londoner Richard Spaven. The duo will drop their debut self-titled EP as 44th Move on Friday, April 24 via Black Acre. They teased the release earlier this month with the song “Move,” featuring Takuya Kuroda.
