Perestroika: A Unique Blend of Electronic Music and Introspective Songwriting

Perestroika, the brainchild of producer Duncan Silvey, has been making waves in the music scene since 2017. With a rotating lineup of members and collaborators, the project has gained recognition from BBC Introducing in various regions and BBC 6 Music. Now, with the release of his latest EP titled 'In Aid of Vulnerability', Silvey delves into the uncharted territory of parenthood.

The EP, recorded over the course of three years, is a heartfelt exploration of the mental challenges and joys of becoming a new father. Silvey's lyrics capture the essence of transitioning into parenthood, offering a raw and vulnerable perspective. The title of the EP reflects his personal journey and his desire to create a world where vulnerability is embraced and shared.

Each track on the EP tells a unique story. "Can see the Horizon, Can't take in the View" explores the struggles of being present in the moment and finding support in unexpected places. "It Didn't Feel Real" recounts a harrowing experience during his partner's pregnancy that made the reality of fatherhood hit home. "Globus" addresses the physical and emotional effects of stress and anxiety, while "JL833191A (Hillshop Trip Remix)" reflects on the dehumanizing experience of navigating the job center system.

Silvey's dedication to expressing his emotions and encouraging others to do the same is evident throughout the EP. His music serves as a testament to the power of vulnerability and the importance of open dialogue. 'In Aid of Vulnerability' is a captivating and introspective collection of songs that resonates with listeners on a deep level.
