Rainy Miller will release DESQUAMATION (Fire, Burn. Nobody), a new album, on HEAD II.
Instead of blissed out ambient and heady beats with pensive lyricism, the release builds on “immersive maximalism” and a “distinctive new musical ground,” we’re told. All 10 tracks are said to be “fiery, intricate, and dense,” stretching across contorted pop and laconic drill with gritty, thought-provoking bars. They put life in modern Britain under the microscope, while delving into self-reflection, angst, trauma, and growth.
Miller is a Preston-born producer who works closely with the likes of Blackhaine, Space Afrika, Iceboy Violet, and Moseley, who feature across the record. He started out making music as a teenager on a digital audio workstation, using his ear for everything, before releasing 2019’s Limbs, his debut album of hazy bedroom pop and hip-hop, on which he fused fragile vocals with smooth, moody melodic beats.
HEAD II is the label of The White Hotel.
