UNKNWN - BBY - 96 kbp by Champion Sound Recordings

'BBY' is the first track from the new EP by UNKNWN, who consist of the producer/singer Gemma Dunleavy and beatmaker/producer Chris Hanna - formerly "Unknown". The duo performed earlier this year at the SXSW festival, Texas and at The Great Escape festival, Brighton. You can watch a short doc film about their american trip here - The release is available in a limited run of 300 onto high quality 140g 12" blue vinyl, with a hand stamped sleeve which can be pre ordered here - "Chris Hanna and Gemma Dunleavy are proving to be an effective pairing as ‘BBY’, with Gemma floating on the beat “as if it were a cloud” and Chris providing some ambient styled electronics/percussion, and some subtle guitar work in among the pitched-down voices and sprawling arrangement. Despite the dense fog around this track, the pair leave an impression of a project hitting more direct. This is pretty great." - Nialler9 Featured as song of the week on Line of Best Fit - Played on Amazing Radio by Simon Raymonde and on BBC Radio 1 by Philly Taggart.
