Her first release on Warp in a decade, Mira Calix returns with a new EP on 25 January.
In this hiatus, Mira's practice has taken focus on installation and exhibition work, centred around classical instrumentation - including work at Tower of London, Somerset House, Southbank Centre and many more.
The basis of the four-track ‘utopia’ EP is a Random Acts film of the same name, soundtracked by Mira, starring Lily Cole and Lily McMenamy and written and directed by acclaimed novelist Adam Thirlwell.

“The past few years I’ve been making mostly installation, which I find thrilling, but the nature of my practice means I tend to work with many hands, many speakers, many materials, many musicians over long periods. It was really refreshing to make this EP, to give myself a time limit, a strict set of rules, a tight sonic palette and be fully autonomous as a writer, producer and musician. In a way it’s going back to my roots, my first ever release on Warp was a 10’, but it also felt completely fresh, playful, to just build some tracks around a cinematic scene - something for friends to move to in the early hours of a louche house party!”
