CYCLAMEN to release debut album ‘SENJYU’ October 25th 2010!
Following on from the success of the ‘Dreamers‘ EP earlier this year, London based Japanese technical mastermind, Hayato Imanishi returns with his CYCLAMEN moniker to deliver the much anticipated debut album, ‘Senjyu‘.
Born and raised in Japan before venturing to the UK when he was 13 years old, Hayato initially started CYCLAMEN as a solo bedroom project, before quickly realising that there was a much wider scope for the interesting new take he was bringing to the genre.
Frustrated with not being able to hear the kind of music he personally wanted to enjoy, Hayato set about amassing a plethora of gifted and revered musicians from the very start (including Mikee Goodman from SikTh and Travis Orbin, ex-Periphery), which quickly developed CYCLAMEN into a truly credible and multi-national collective.
A culmination of all these efforts, ‘Senjyu‘ is an outstanding reflection of Hayato’s vision. An album that combines influences from both straight up bands such as Thrice and Converge, along with the sounds of atmospheric outfits such as Mew and Sigur Ros, makes for an extremely compelling listen.
CYCLAMEN’s debut album, ‘Senjyu’, will be released on October 25th, 2010.
