The Half Earth has just released this lovely breathless track on Soundcloud in advance of his forthcoming EP Light Breaks In. The Half Earth, real name Conor Stephenson, is a native Sheffield musician and this is the first track to be previewed from the EP since Glass, a track that gained over 20,000 plays on Soundcloud when it was put online ten months ago.
During that time Stephenson has been busy working with producer Rich Cooper, who has previously worked with Mystery Jets and Banks, to turn early demos into fully formed numbers like Borders. Expect swirling orchestral emotions with touches of electronic and folk-influenced production.
You can catch The Half Earth on tour with Lucy Rose (see the dates on her Facebook page).
