If you’ve been following the movements of Zomby’s Cult Music imprint closely, you might recognize the name Prayer from a 2013 12″ which he split with another producer called Forever Forever. Both artists are pretty mysterious, but now Prayer has reemerged with a follow up to the gorgeous haze of “The Two Halves.”
New track “Knowing,” which comes from a debut EP of the same name, is a little more upfront, with the percussion no longer shrouded in fog and an icy melody running throughout. It’s when the vocal samples come in though, that “Knowing” really takes hold, drawing you into a dreamworld dotted with derelict cathedrals and monasteries haunted by hellish spirits.
Listen to the wonderfully dark song below, and look out for the Knowing EP, which Prayer is self-releasing later this week.
