The pairing of The Oscillation's Demian Castellanos and Tomaga's Tom Relleen prepare to unleash their debut album

Autotelia is the new collaborative project of The Oscillation's Demian Castellanos and Tomaga's Tom Relleen who will release their debut album together, the appropriately titled I, next month.

Premiering above ahead of the album's release is opening track track 'First Flight' which you can hear in all its 11-minute glory, alongside some colourful visuals put together by Ross Adams.

"This project was started as an opportunity to play more freely, with less of the process, consideration and production we both associated with our main projects," explains Tomaga's Tom Relleen. Much of the music that features on the album was recorded by the duo in the last two years.

“These tracks are pure escapism – zoning out and not worrying about anything," Relleen adds. "I think that when playing music for a completely new project it can be really liberating since there is no expectation and no baggage associated with that you might have already released; the slate is blank."

Rocket Recordings will release I on June 12, which can be pre-ordered here. It will follow on from Sex Swing's first album for the label, Type II, which is out on May 15.
