LISTEN: Belbury Circle & John Foxx

Collaborative EP Empty Avenues to be released in September - listen to clips below

The Belbury Circle is Jim Jupp of Belbury Poly and Jon Brooks of the Advisory Circle, and the Quietus are pleased to announce that for their debut collaborative EP Empty Avenues, to be released next month on Ghost Box Records, they have joined forces with mighty stalwart of British electronics and synth pop, John Foxx. We’re told: ‘The music of The Belbury Circle occupies the overlapping territories of Belbury Poly and The Advisory Circle. Foxx’s songs are perfectly framed by haunting pastoral electronics, with perhaps a stronger pop sensibility than previous Ghost Box releases. Brooks and Jupp readily site Foxx as a key influence on their work and as a result his distinctive voice occupies their soundworld effortlessly.’ Listen to clips from the EP below.

The record comes in luxurious packaging designed by Ghost Box’s Julian House, with variant covers for the CD and 10” vinyl versions. The 10” also comes with free download codes. Listen to a clip from the EP below:
