Engineers – Always Returning
Engineers, who currently comprise Liverpudlian multi-instrumentalist Mark Peters, celebrated German ambient artist/producer Ulrich Schnauss and London based drummer and composer Matthew Linley, have been creating mesmerising music with brilliantly shaded guitar textures and teasing lyrical ambiguities since 2004.
The band’s previous albums have garnered acclaim from all areas of the media – 2005’s debut Engineers (‘hypnotic lullabies from beautific Brit newcomers’ **** Q), 2009’s Three Fact Fader (‘a blistering statement of intent’ **** The Sunday Times), and 2010’s swift follow-up In Praise Of More (‘should be given to most UK bands as an example of in making an album that is a joy to behold’ 8/10 Clash); with BBC Music’s Lauren Laverne stating ‘Everything they do is brilliant’.
With German electronic genius, renowned producer/re-mixer and solo artist Ulrich Schnauss (Depeche Mode, Mojave 3, Death Cab For Cutie, Pet Shop Boys), joining Engineers as a full time member on their 2010’s In Praise Of More album his influence is clearly apparent on the tracks such as ‘Innsbruck’ and ‘Smoke & Mirrors’.
Ahead of the album release the track ‘Fight Or Flight’ is set to be released as the first single on 28th July, with a second single scheduled post album release.
