Info for The Dream Derealised
Brighton-based artist William Doyle, found on these pages numerous times as East India Youth, has released nine new, mostly instrumental tracks in aid of the mental health charity Mind.
This was made at a time when doing something creative in a quick and immediate fashion felt vital, and doing so helped carry me to a new place. I’m releasing them now as a cathartic measure, and as a message for others who may be going through difficult times themselves.
"These pieces were recorded during the summer, "explains Doyle on the accompanying text of the album, "when focusing on creating them helped guide me through a difficult period of anxiety, panic and a regular dissociative feeling called derealisation."
All money made from this short (mostly) instrumental album will be donated to the mental health charity Mind (www.mind.org.uk)
Recording in bedrooms since the age of 14, William has made it his mission to create vast soundscapes and progressive song structures without the most sophisticated technology. He released his first solo music online in 2008, followed by two EPs and an album as the singer and songwriter of indie pop band Doyle And The Fourfathers. From there, William became best known for his electronic music under the moniker East India Youth, of which he released one EP and two critically acclaimed albums, including Total Strife Forever which was nominated for the 2014 Mercury Prize. Since the end of East India Youth in 2016, William has occasionally been releasing music under his own name, including several volumes of ambient music and other collaborative art projects.
This album contains no booklet.
