Sigha Preps New EP as Faugust
London producer James Shaw (a.k.a. Sigha) has announced plans to release a new EP under the name Faugust via Avian sub-label Mira next month. Entitled Devotions (1984 – 2006), the four-track effort is described as "emotive and highly personal," as it shows a strain of Shaw's production that has remained "largely buried since 2004." Said to combine the artist's capabilities as a guitarist along with Shaw's more established talents as an electronic producer, Devotions (1984 – 2006) will offer "melodic flourishes" and a "pop sensibility not seen in his other work."
Shaw will debut his Faugust project on June 12. Before then, Devotions (1984 – 2006)'s artwork and tracklist can be found below, and EP cut "Penitence" can be streamed in full here via Juno Plus, as part of the site's extended conversation with the UK talent.
