Trip-hoppy electronic pop from Birmingham

The track comes from the album 'Impermanence', which is out tomorrow

Today's exclusive track premiere is a trip-hop inspired slice of electronic pop from Birmingham four-piece FABRIK. Everest is taken from their sophomore long-player Impermanence, which is out on their own FABRIK label tomorrow (Friday 10 July).

Regular iDJ readers may remember that we premiered a FABRIK video back in May last year, when we discussed their fusion of "trip-hop, electronica, rock and psychedelia" (their description), their BBC Introducing… nomination and their debut album City Islands. Since then, they've seen one of the tracks from that album, Black Lake, used as the theme music for a popular podcast in the US – and in fact Impermanence has been crowdfunded mostly by the large US fanbase they've picked up as a result.

Just like its predecessor, Impermanence touches on a range of styles, from piano lament Medicate to the hazy, folk-tinged Hinterland. But the track we're premiering today, Everest, operates in moody art-pop territory… see what you think.
