Leon Vynehall – English Oak (Chapter VII)

Leon Vynehall releases his debut album Nothing Is Still on June 15 via Ninja Tune. Since the album announcement he has shared Envelopes (Chapter VI) and Movements (Chapter III) as well their stunning accompanying videos (directed by Young Replicant) and novella chapters.

Today he has followed up with English Oak, a track with an infectious rhythm that nods towards Vynehall’s dancefloor prowess whilst flowing seamlessly into the structure of this grand, textural album.

The track is based around a surreal dream that Vynehall’s grandmother had about falling from the top of the Chrysler Building during her time in New York. As well as the original he has shared a Gerd Janson remix.

In addition, Vynehall has announced that he’ll be supporting Jon Hopkins as a special guest for a series of DJ dates in the US in September following his debut full band live shows in the UK in July at London’s Hackney Showrooms. He has also announced he’ll be playing a DJ set at New York’s esteemed MoMA PS1 in August.
