Offers First Single “Branches” and Kate Bush cover “Suspended in Gaffa” feat. Phoebe Oglesbee
Chrome Canyon (aka Morgan Z, Apes & Androids former keyboardist) is announcing the release of his debut LP, Elemental Themes out this summer. In the meantime he has offered the first single “Branches” available for free download at SoundCloud.
Following Apes & Android’s 2009 breakup, Morgan Z began his own recording studio in Brooklyn, where he started collecting vintage synthesizers. Honing his solo project in the studio, he collaborated with Phoebe Oglesbee, and Tyler Thacker from Greatest Hits who drums on the album. Chrome Canyon’s sound is heavily layered with analog synths weaving in a psychedelic pastiche of Kraftwerk, Vangelis, Giorgio Moroder and Pink Floyd and one can expect to hear it in an epic soundtrack fashion on Elemental Themes. In honor of Kate Bush’s “Director’s Cut” release, Chrome Canyon and vocalist Phoebe Oglesbee have teamed up to cover “Suspended in Gaffa.” They will also be working together on an EP this summer with more details to come.
