ABOUT LINE & CIRCLE:
Line & Circle was born of the collaboration between Brian J. Cohen (vocals, guitar) and Brian Egan (keyboards)–Ohio natives who met in the Midwest before departing for Los Angeles.
With two critically acclaimed singles under their belts, Line & Circle returned from a west coast tour earlier this summer with a wealth of new material. Looking to capture the rhythmic urgency and emotional restlessness of these new songs, the group, which also includes guitarist Eric Neujahr, drummer Nick Cisik, and bassist Jon Engelhard, quickly entered the studio with producer Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast’s “Crazy For You”), who also produced the band’s earlier singles.
Recorded live to tape in Los Angeles and mixed in Philadelphia, Line & Circle’s self-titled EP is the result of these sessions, comprising three new compositions: “Wounded Desire,” “Mesolithic,” and “Beauty Is Exhausting.”
With particular attention paid to atmosphere and negative space, basic tracks were completed quickly during the initial two-day recording session, leaving time for the group to experiment with sonic nuances including cutting and layering tape loops. As with the band’s singles, there are musical nods to early 4AD dream pop and chiming I.R.S. Records-era guitar rock, woven around Cohen’s melodically rich vocals.
