For you who dont know this newbie – Thomas Azier is an electronic-pop artist based in Berlin. Early in 2012 he released his debut EP “Hylas 001” featuring the single “Red Eyes”, a live favorite of audiences across Europe and the United States. He is now set to release a 2nd EP „Hylas 002“, which again appears on his label “Hylas Records/BMG”.

“The mood of “Hylas002” arises from the sublime essence of solitude” Azier explains. Within the darkness of the ever-transforming city he explores the nature of isolation through conscious introspection; examining the process of becoming a shadow of oneself. Azier wrote and produced all of the songs himself, with only help from co-producer and sound designer Robin Hunt. During an extensive tour this year Thomas will present his new material live on stage, while also supporting Woodkid on several live dates. In the meantime the 24-year old multi-instrumentalist is working on his biggest project yet; his debut album.

The third part within the Hylas trilogy, due out in Summer 2013. “I love the compact form of pop music. It’s such a strong vessel to carry your message with and reach lots of people. Every song I write has different layers. As a listener, you can go through those layers but you can also choose to stay on the pop surface.“ – Azier.
