Utopia leans on its playful indie-pop sound, which also incorporates a touch of alternative country thanks to Rose’s love for Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell and modern artist Maggie Rogers.

IT IS OK that Romy Church, aka e4444e, has a song called Burning on his latest album Autumnal Eve about the Buddhist philosophy of suppressing self-belief. The Newcastle electronic artist tried to reinvent himself on his third album, but as he found out, it’s almost impossible to get lost. “I wanted to make my own rock album, but it didn’t come out that way obviously, but there are rock elements for sure,” Church said. “It’s my version of a guitar album, I suppose. Church wrote Autumnal Eve on acoustic guitar last year, building on the more organic sound he first unveiled on his 2020 Coldstream Road album. While the album features more conventional instrumentation – provided by himself, his brother Noah Church and Dougal McMullan – e4444e trademark ambient sounds give Autumnal Eve a meditative feel. In fact, the album is influenced by Buddhist poetry and space and continues the fascination of Church for the nature he first explored when he debuted in 2018, Mr Dover and The Endless Rovers. “As I get older, my way of thinking changes [nature influencing my music]”he said.” I think this is my ocean album in terms of space. If the last one was a river, then this one is an ocean. “An album launch tour is scheduled for February.
