On April 30, Roman Poncet will release his debut album, Gypsophila, on Len Faki’s Figure imprint.

Gypsophila is the first release from Roman Poncet since 2016’s Marguerite EP on Figure and presents an immersive, immaculately produced LP. Those familiar with Poncet’s work will know sound design plays a leading role in his music and on Gypsophila his manipulation of sound is something to behold. From the fathoms-deep ambience of the album’s opening cut to the rippling textures of “Impression Of A Dying Swarm” and the closing cut’s trudging rhythms, Gypsophila is a marriage of form and function.

In support of the release, Poncet has offered up “Thick Vegetation,” a tribalistic cut full of dense soundscapes, as today’s XLR8R download, available via WeTransfer below.
