Premiere | Stream Eli August & The Abandoned Buildings’ A Heartache Suite EP


Chances are that if you came across Monday’s Song of the Day from Eli August & The Abandoned Buildings, you went away wanting to hear more. Well, you’re in luck, because now we can bring you an exclusive first listen to the full five-track EP. As we mentioned before, you don’t need to look much further than the title ‘A Heartache Suite’ to get a sense of the tone of this record, but while the mood may be universally sombre, with such a diverse array of instrumentation, they don’t stand still for very long. You’ve already heard ‘Although You’re Gone’, the stand-out single which allows this collective to spread their wings with a loud, rambunctious sound, but keep listening in order to be charmed by the horns of ‘Holy Ghost’ or the pumping rhythms which do at least follow a slow start to ‘Slow Start’. The lush ‘Wrought’ wraps up an impressive, rounded collection of songs.

The EP is released on September 2.
