Electronic producer/composer Forest Swords, aka Matthew Barnes, has shared a new double single “Torch / Pearl of Hail”.

The release - recorded in a warehouse in Barnes’ home city of Liverpool - follows on from Barnes' first studio album in six years, Bolted.

"“Torch / Pearl of Hail” were siblings written as part of the 'Bolted' album sessions, recorded in a factory studio space in Liverpool last winter, that deserved an extra life” Barnes comments. “I'm trying to not have much music hanging around on hard drives gathering dust anymore, life's too short. This pair are a bit lighter and more spring-like than most of 'Bolted', but still share the same DNA."

"Torch / Pearl of Hail” is out now on Ninja Tune.
