Eccentric singer, producer and instrumental innovator Look Mum No Computer has released his debut EP, Human Procrastination. To accompany the release, he’s also unveiled a brand new video for the title track where Look Mum No Computer and a group of Teletubbies encounter zero gravity. Blending together the expansive sonic textures of his home-built synthesisers with irresistible indie-tinged vocals, Human Procrastination is a gigantic and inventive electro gem that is both equal parts haunting and graceful.
Regarding the title track Look Mum No Computer says, “Human Procrastination is just about what we all tend to do, from the smallest job right up to the biggest things effecting humanity as a whole, good old procrastination. The funny thing is I wrote this whilst procrastinating from finishing another song, so it goes full circle. It’s looking at the fact we are talking about the issues we are facing and have been facing for many years but not really doing anything about it.”
Continuing further about the EP he says, “All the songs are about similar themes, be it modern life being rubbish, even though I probably have rose tinted glasses on ‘Modern Gas’, to ‘Grandmas Money’ being about baby boomers buying all the houses making it harder for me to build a synthesiser out of a house!!! It’ only a matter of time!”
Following his sold out headline show at London’s Electrowerkz, an extensive sold out tour in Germany earlier this year and a mind-bending performance at Deer Shed Festival in July, Look Mum No Computer will be hitting the road again next month for a seven-date UK tour, before touring Europe in November.
