Anil Sebastian – Human
London-based artist Anil Sebastian will release his debut album Mesonoxian later this September, but today we’re able to listen to the first single to be lifted from it. Titled Human, the track is co-produced with Anil’s brother Ingmar and Jon Hopkins’ collaborator Cherif Hashizume. Finely arranged, Human is a song that ambitiously blends together, in an powerful crescendo, glacial electronica, organic drums and ghostly vocals.
“Human life is a perplexing clusterfuck,” says Anil. “I remember watching the stars from my window when I was 8 or so wanting to Jack-and-the-beanstalk myself off the planet, to begin again. If we could leave and start again, would we fail in the same ways again? Hiraeth is a welsh word that describes the feeling I had – a homesick grief for something that no longer exists (or in this case probably never did). We are tiny in the universe but look to space, the cold desolate void that surrounds us, as an expanse of hope and the future. Human is about all of these things.”
The song is accompanied by its official video, which you can watch here below.
