“Anil Sebastian releases his first single, “Human” – it’s a sparkling, sweeping, epic taste of his upcoming debut album Mesonoxian.”
Line of Best Fit
London-based artist Anil Sebastian’s debut album Mesonoxian is due for release on Relative State Records in September 2016. Produced by Anil, his brother Ingmar and Jon Hopkins collaborator Cherif Hashizume, Mesonoxian is an interplay between intimacy and expanse. Intricate microbeats, soaring strings and choral motifs provide a beautifully dark backdrop to Anil’s soaring and utterly unique multi-octave voice.
Anil is the founder and director of London Contemporary Voices choir (LCV) and has collaborated with over 50 artists including Grammy-winner Imogen Heap, Laura Mvula, Sam Smith and Eska including appearances with Mercury-winners Alt-J on Later…with Jools Holland. From lantern-lit shows in dilapidated buildings to several appearances as a singer and choir director at Burberry’s 2015/2016 fashion shows. Anil’s distinctive voice has caught the attention of many including Bjork/Madonna producer Guy Sigsworth (who Anil is currently collaborating on a new project with).
Anil’s choral version of Amber Run’s ‘I Found’ (which LCV performed with the band for Mahogany) has had over 1,000,000 views. Anil performed Drumheart, his recently collaboration with Bjork’s virtuoso hang player Manu Delago live as a Maida Vale Session on Jamie Cullum’s BBC Radio 2 show.
