Dead Ahead is the new single by Sone Institute, the artist moniker for UK based electronic musician Roman Bezdyk. Following the recent New Vermin Replace Old EP, Dead Ahead will be released via Roman’s own Mystery Bridge imprint on 30th June 2021. Dead Ahead is taken from the new Sone Institute album, after the glitter before the decay, due in September 2021.
Dead Ahead is driven by a claustrophobic, motorik pulse set against subtle rhythmic textures and post-industrial atmospheres. As Roman explains, “Dead Ahead evokes an imaginary world, exploding like a flare, intense and finite”. The single is taken from the forthcoming new album and is a taster for the power and density of the latest sonic chapter in the soundworld of Sone Institute.
Throughout his impressive career of releases Sone Institute has long been championed by the likes of Gideon Coe and Stuart Maconie on BBC 6 Music, Radio 3’s Late Junction and his albums have received praise from The Wire, The Quietus and Electronic Sound. Sone Institute has performed live only rarely, with exclusive performances having taken place at the Union Chapel, Tate Britain and at Green Man Festival.
