Bibio releases a new video to “Curls” directed by Stephen Wilkinson and produced by Peter Marsden. This is first single from his upcoming album “Ribbons”, which will be available through Warp Records on 12th April.
“Ribbons” is Stephen Wilkinson’s ninth album to date and follows the release of his ambient atmospheric project, Phantom Brickworks. Wilkinson’s sound in his latest work can be seen as an extension of the structured songwriting he explored last on 2016’s A Mineral Love, yielding folkloric charm and a mostly acoustic-led approach that looks to ‘60s and ‘70s psychedelia, soul, ambient, electronic and his own field recordings for inspiration.
A self-taught musician, singer and producer, Wilkinson plays nearly all of the instrumental parts on the album and unveils new instruments to his palette, bringing in mandolins, fiddle and other stringed instruments which give a new flavour to his music.
