South London’s Jerkcurb - aka Jacob Read - has announced plans to release his debut album ‘Air Con Eden’ later this year.
His first full-length is set to be released on 13th September via Handsome Dad Records and features production contributions from the likes of Tom Carmichael, Ojan Genc and Pulp‘s Steve Mackey.
He’s also offered up a new taste of his record in the form of ‘Timelapse Tulip’, which comes accompanied by a 3D animated video - ooh-er - created by Read himself, alongside director Gilbert Bannerman and production designer Theo Boswell.
Speaking of the video, Read has said: “My only pretence was I wanted it to be set in one apartment, someone’s life shown over a period of time, told through snapshots, small details. Bert [director Gilbert Bannerman] took this idea to somewhere I never would have anticipated. It was completely new territory for everyone - which made it so exciting.” The director has added: “The process of lighting animating and filming the 3D models without previous experience was like a religious quest. Most of the time your wandering about in a dark cave bumping into everything until you find a glowing professional who wants to help out, but says ‘there’s worse to come’.”
In support of his forthcoming album, Jerkcurb will also head out on a UK tour this October. Check out his live dates, and watch the video for ‘Timelapse Tulip’, below.
