Baltic Fleet is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist and DIY producer Paul Fleming, who returns to Liverpool Psych Fest following the release of his sense-tingling third album ‘The Dear One’. Taking its inspiration from the Pennine wilderness, ‘The Dear One’ is a psychedelic-tinged electronic soundscape underpinned by an insatiable motorik beat that sweeps you up like soundtrack for a journey into the cosmos.
The new Baltic Fleet sound draws influence from the likes of New Order’s Movement, Daft Punk’s Homework, The KLF, Talking Heads, Boards of Canada and Tangerine Dream. The record documents a musical imagination of the lives of characters from a diary discovered by Fleming, and blurs the lines between the diary and life here and now, touching on religion, loss and escapism.
