Set to drop late next month via Editions Mego, the lead track from Fennesz's upcoming Bécs LP has surfaced. In its opening moments, "Static Kings" incorporates effects-heavy acoustic guitar amongst an engulfing bed of flowing soundscapes. This tranquil beginning eventually gives way to a more burnt aesthetic, where the singe of digital distortion and growing mass of heavenly sonic layers seem to struggle to push past each other. In other words, it's a beautiful six-minute mess. Below, Fennesz's "Static Kings" can be streamed in full before Bécs sees its official release on April 29.
