Hyetal's latest album, Youth & Power, will drop via Other/other on October 27.
Following on from his two previous full-lengths on True Panther Sounds and Black Acre, Youth & Power was recorded over the three years since 2013's Modern Worship and presents somewhat of a transformation for Hyetal, moving from a more off-kilter dance style to pop-driven pastures. The haunting, textured atmospheres and bent rhythms remain, but there's more of an emotional honesty, openness, and beauty to the tracks, something Hyetal explains was a direct response to feeling detached from his music: “Previously my approach to writing music was very rooted in escapism. I began experiencing a sense of detachment in my life which led me to question how healthy this approach was. I wanted music to help me feel connected again.”
