As L.Pierre Scottish musician and one-time Arab Strap frontman Aidan Moffat has long tinkered away in the margins of lo-fi pop and electronica, displaying a penchant for melodic experimentation and heartstring tugging that’s resulted in some cracking tunes in a similar terrain to Boards of Canada.

The EP will be released on 10-inch vinyl on September 9, and is available to pre-order now from Melodic – stream Movement I
