On the week of February 24th 2014, 4AD will release Blue Film, the debut album by LA based producer Lo-Fang (née Matthew Hemerlein). The album was written and recorded during Hemerlein's world travels, from a farmhouse in Maryland to a hotel in Cambodia, whilst taking in studios in London and Nashville. He completed the album at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles with producer Francois Tetaz.
Noted filmmaker Grant Singer (Sky Ferreira, Kendrick Lamar, DIIV) directed the two-part video for album opener 'Look Away' that has premiered today via VEVO. The first half acts as a nod to the op-art movement, with the second half filmed in an abandoned mansion in the Hollywood Hills. Watch the video below or on Lo-Fang's website here.
