“Suddenly, I didn’t quite mind not being modern...” (Roland Barthes).  
 
This quote from the late great critic seems somehow appropriate when describing the music of Charlie March. Not to say that his music is any way old fashioned but there’s an underlying depth, an emotional sensibility that you don’t hear much these days and is all the more unusual coming from someone born  
only 24 years ago.  
 
“After The Clouds Clear” is the debut EP from Charlie March. Charlie has worked previously in ‘The Toy Orchestra’ with Andy Ramsay of Stereolab/Europa 51 as well as providing soundtracks for various short films and installations. For this EP Charlie has gathered around him a diverse selection of talented musicians, lending this project an unusual and distinctive charm.  
 
Joe Mount AKA Metronomy, is a rising star in the electronica scene and has produced, mixed and contributed a remix for the EP. Dominic Murcott of the High Llamas, did the strings arrangements while the Elysian Quartet (Simon Fisher-Turner, Killa Kela, Hot Chip and Max De Wardener) provided the lush and cheerful strings.  
 
Like a soft collision between Aphex Twin at his most melodic and Nick Drake at his string soaked best or some hybrid of Steve Reich and Syd Barrett scoring a Tim Burton movie, the music of Charlie March has a lingering, delicate beauty that will be around for a long time.  
 
Packaged in LP sleeve to preserve cool 12” sized limited artwork by artist Yokoland.
