Dilly Gent, who worked as the creative director for Radiohead (commissioning “all of their music videos and photography, as well as their visual content“) provided guidance for 1st Base Runner’s sophomore EP, Ellis, that’s set to be released on December 10.
The EP follows Gent’s debut EP, Seven Years of Silence, and is “a collaboration with [his] longtime friend Bryan Ellis.”
“With the creative floodgates now open and the contributions of Ellis added to the record, the new release is markedly more lively,” reads a press release for the album. “Brighter chords and percussion moved to the fore while keeping the same hazy glow that gave Seven Years its ineffable vibe.”
The first two music videos, “Near Me” and “Man Overboard” are also said to be “effervescing synths bubble over a beat both warm and fuzzy and effortlessly cool.” while the EP will be “a score for young love stumbling through the long summer evenings.
