Terrible Records will release ginla's album debut in September, titled Codex. In tandem with today’s announcement, the two have shared the second single off of the LP, “Infinite”—available for streaming below.
The duo met in 2012 while recording with Nick Hakim for his first two EPs. After cutting their teeth as sidemen for Adrianne Lenker (Big Thief) and Lorely Rodriguez (Empress Of) the boys set out to start a new project distinctly their own. Their self-titled debut EP was released less than a year ago on Terrible Records and featured original artwork by John Baldassari. Their intimate, homespun synth-pop reflected disparate influences and emotions: dream-pop, drumnbass, elation, and isolation.
Codex is said to show the duo "dipping deeper and streamlining their sound." We're told to that "echoes of Brian Eno's resplendent ambience curl up against flickering drum & bass breaks, and the wide-open release of Four Tet's garage house."
