Spirit Image [精神イメージ], is a new single from Brighton, UK-based artists Louis Sterling and Jack Cleary. It dropped via Collective Resonance on Record Store Day 2017 (April 22nd) and is now available as a digital release, along with some very limited edition 7", lathe-cut vinyl. The vinyl features hand illustrated centre label art by Japanese visual artist Kotaro Chiba.

As an exploration of spiritualism, this release is a dedication to Japanese culture, through their signature styles of IDM, Breakbeat, Ambient, Indie Rock, and UK Soundsystem culture. Delicately produced both musically and conceptually, the project not only translates as a strong body of work, but also narrates a cinematic journey.

“Spirit Image” (Side A), produced by Louis Sterling, consists of complex computer programming, polyrhythmic patterns and binaural vocal samples. An evidently progressive piece, the track also features an excerpt from “Spirits Of The Dead”, written by poet Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849). This first track was premiered on the BBC Introducing In The West show on April 1st.

“Sanzu” (Side B), is a joint effort by Louis and Jack. It heavily delves into the narrative, standing as the musical representation of Japan's Sanzu River, also known as the River of Three Crossings. In Japan, it is believed that the dead must cross the river on the way to the afterlife, being a belief reflected in Japanese funerals when six coins are placed in the coffin with the dead.
