The songwriter has only one release under his belt so far (the 'Stoic' EP released on Left Blank about 18 months ago) but he last week he nailed his colours – or lack therof – to the Tri Angle mast for his debut LP 'What's Between' with a brief Youtube video.
Now, full details of the album have been released. 'What's Between' is the debut LP from Irish singer and songwriter James Kelly – a new name to us, but apparently a member of acclaimed black metal group Altar of Plagues, who disbanded after three albums. Kelly's work as WIFE is very different, a dark solo project that mixes industrial drones and hard techno rhythms with pastoral songwriting.
Two producers on the album might be a bit more familiar to Dummy readers than Kelly's metal past – The Haxan Cloak, who produced the record alongside Kelly (and was recently heard working on another album from a black metal group, The Body), as well as former Vex'd man and lauded ambient artist Roly Porter.
You can stream a new song from the album, Heart Is A Far Light, now.
