Five years after her much-loved debut LP, ‘Homes’, Stockholm-based Shida Shahabi returns with her sophomore album, ‘Living Circle’, which is announced today with the release of a first single, ‘Aestus’. The album sees the artist pushing forwards into deeper, more expansive sonic realms. With tracks stretching longer and slower, and her piano lines less ornate and dominant, ‘Living Circle’ is a heavyweight album and a must-hear for fans of Stars Of The Lid, Sarah Davachi, Max Richter, Labradford, etc. Due for release on June 23rd on vinyl, CD and digital formats, it is preceded by a live show supporting A Winged Victory For The Sullen at London’s Barbican Centre on May 13th.
