Nihilism is Pointless is the new EP by British keyboard player, composer and producer Sebastian Reynolds, due on 29th January 2021 on the London label Faith & Industry. Nihilism is Pointless follows the previous Sebastian Reynolds EP The Universe Remembers (Faith & Industry, May 2020) and the single Heartbeat/My Mother Was The Wind (PinDrop Records, September 2020).

Following on from the dense, eclectic sound worlds of previous EP The Universe Remembers, musical influences vary across the EP, from the opening title track Nihilism is Pointless channelling the downbeat atmospherics of Burial to Diving Board evoking post-rock/electronica artists such as Explosions In The Sky and Battles whilst HAL’s Lament, a tribute to HAL from 2001AD, A Space Odyssey, recalls the broken beats and dark atmospheres of UNKLE and Boards of Canada. The oceanic drones, expansive synthesiser sounds and halting rhythms of The Silent Majority are a world unto themselves and the EP closes with the track Mother’s Day, which is a unique blend of sonorous clarinet lines set to a sound world of clattering, pulsing textures.


released January 29, 2021

Nihilism is Pointless was produced by Sebastian Reynolds and mixed with Mike Bannard at The Aviary, Oxford. Mastered by Andreas [LUPO] Lubich at Loop-O.
