British-Iranian artist Hiatus (real name Cyrus Shahrad) returns to announce the details behind his highly anticipated new studio album, which lands on April 9 via Lucky Thunder. Hiatus presents “Distancer”, an album that aims to transfer reality to another level through its unique sound, which it consolidates with this latest work.
Through solid arrangements and solid programming, this single becomes a vehicle for reverential music that manages to spill out enough of the artist's own ideas to shake off the high era, allowing it to exist in its own right as credible. “Distancer” serves as the pinnacle of downtempo electronic music, riddled with the melodic-trend instrumentation for which Hiatus has become known.
Altogether, this single is as experimental as it is intense and addictive, it takes over oneself like a sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with a certain fluidity are willing to do. In addition, "Distancer" has become a recognized artist and collaborator throughout his career, counting on millions of streams on platforms with his distinctive catalog. “Distancer” could be defined as emotional electronics that fluctuate from the most peaceful environment to the most energetic bass and kick drums, passing through beautiful orchestral textures.
We do not know what the future holds, but we do know that this single is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. For records like this, we can continue to fight for a better future.
