Autotelia reveal second track from forthcoming debut album

"Parallels the blissful drift of Cluster’s ‘II’, the overheated ampstacks of prime Spacemen 3 or the becalmed modernism of Eno."

"Imagine if Seefeel came from 70s Berlin!"


Autotelia – the new project conceived by The Oscillation’s Demian Castellanos and Tomaga’s Tom Relleen have revealed the second track to be taken from their forthcoming  debut album called 'I', which is released on ltd edition LP on 24 July.

The track is called 'Floating Island Of The Gods' and you can watch the retina melting video created by Rocket's very own John O'Carroll exclusively now via Backseat Mafia:

'Autotelia' - as originally coined by psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - describes a process by which someone has a purpose in, rather than outside of themselves. Those who are autotelic depend less on external rewards for their satisfaction, being driven instead simply by purpose or curiosity.

Such was the genesis of this new project – started purely as an exploratory audial voyage with no expectations, no boundaries and no context. Autotelia’s sound - as chronicled on ‘I’, evolved purely of its own volition, as its makers were happy to allow their own chemistry and interplay to take its course. This zen-like simplicity of approach has been more than rewarded, as the impulses and intentions blossomed into meditative extrapolations both sonically rich and spiritually captivating (bewitching).
