Tim Saul has signed and licensed his new album “Thresholds” to BAYO.

Like many good things in life, a chance introduction led to a series of conversations and the discovery of a like-minded creative vision. Time passed and an album was created, shared, listened to and loved, culminating in the license signing of Tim Saul to Swedish Thrift-shop label BARK AT YOUR OWNER. Tim Saul, the brainchild of the UK band Earthling, has an impressive resume and body of work to his discography. Now, the album “Thresholds” is the new cinematic electronica project from the sagacious producer and composer. Written and recorded beside the seas of Brighton, Mallorca & Suffolk, the project was mixed in Bristol at Invada Studios (home of Portishead's Geoff Barrow) in collaboration with Jamie Orchard-Lisle (Beak/Goldfrapp/ Penguin Cafe Orchestra).


Stylistically, this engaging album ranges from atmospheric beat-driven cuts, to more spacious ambient pieces with neo-classical leanings. Sonic storytelling with a poetic intention. A visually captivating & beguiling short film titled "In The Future, Only The Curious Will Survive" made with American video artist Agnes Haus (Penelope Trappes/ Golden Filter) will launch the project in Autumn 2022, with the full 9 track LP to be released in February 2023 on the thrift-shop Swedish label - Bark at Your Owner. The album also ends with a bonus track featuring the late, great US diva, Julee Cruise (of David Lynch/Twin Peaks).

I Love it!
- Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith (electronic music artist)


24 George St. – Easter Monday during Lockdown. A pop-up studio in a cavernous basement of an old townhouse – part surrealist shebeen, part North African souk. Previously a bakery, the building has been home to many generations of musicians & story-tellers. On this day, in this makeshift lab, ghosts bounce straight off of the walls & into the melodies, creation & backbone of the composition.

With the 2nd single from the LP “Thresholds” - released on BAYO in Feb 2023 - Tim Saul merges a range of influences he grew up listening to in the 80's : Alt Rock, Post punk, Dream Pop & pioneering electronic artists. In the process creating a stylistically hybrid track, with a distinct nod towards the iconic sound of the Cocteau Twins, mixed with timeless psychedelic overtones, bringing to mind contemporary artists such as Sigur Ros & the Unloved.

A simple & powerful, hypnotic synth riff sits atop a foundation of driving bass & drums, whilst enchanting clouds of vocal harmonies - reminiscent of Le Mystere Des Voix Bulgares – rise & fall as intense cinematic strings pull the track towards to an intense crescendo.

24 George St. comes in 2 versions : the original instrumental version & the expanded vocal version featuring Swedish electronic artist Elsa Hedberg aka Elsa Esmeralda, who elevates the track with her uniquely distinctive voice. She has previous been featured on all the million steaming tracks by London Electricity.


For fans Of : The Cinematic Orchestra, Massive Attack, Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Clint Mansell, Brian Eno & David Byrne, Nils Frahm, Harold Budd, Ryuichi Sakamoto


  • I Love it! - Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith (electronic music artist)


  • Beautiful, haunting & cinematic. You can instantly imagine the pieces as soundtracks on a film, carrying emotion, suspense, intrigue & much more, representing elapsed time. All the pieces distinctly different and yet linked into a whole. Stand out tracks are : Cryptophasia - beautiful pulsing piano, 24 George Street ; very moving with the strong rhythm & voices ; Radiant Particulars with its beat & fascinating voice - upbeat, uplifting & strange! ; & Thresholds, beautiful & haunting with its pace & height and depth. - Nicola Cooper (Writer & Poet)


  • A fabulous album. So many favourite tracks!. I love the Cryptophasia's 1 & 2 - the pulse & the way the beautiful melodies crossover & meld into each other : You are the King of ‘MELD-ODIES'! Very Twin Peaksy. Lovely. The title track is big & beautiful, with evocative choice of words & quite 80's in feel. 24 George St. is also quite 80s & quite 60s styalistically, but all the tracks very much have your own poetic style. I loved the space cretaed by Behind the Lights are the Stars - probably my favourite. No, my favourite is Radiant Particulars.! I think that one is a number one. Alone, Together, We are. How very true. Great way to end the album - sad & thoughtful yet also deeply hopeful! Your style is musically, philosophically, rhythmically haunting & melodically exciting. - Jane Bom-Bane (Singer, Songwriter & Storyteller)


  • What a stunning piece of work. Sounds great - the flow and drama is spot on. I think this is a great piece of art. - John Cloud Head (Honcho at BAYO/ Playground Sync & Publishing, Scandanavia)

In The Future, Only The Curious Will Survive
- Official release date Nov. 11

Directed by visual artist Agnes Haus (Penelope Trappes, Golden Filter), 'In The Future, Only The Curious Will Survive' is an enchanting & kaleidoscopic short film exploring memory, childhood & uncertain freedom in a post-apocalyptic Stalker-esque world. The impressionistic film incorporates exquisite depth of colour & vision, in collaboration with the beautifully reflective score from composer Tim Saul (Earthling, Julee Cruise, Portishead), whose original ideas the film is based on.


Part 1 - Cryptophasia : Seraphic twins emerge through the undergrowth into a polychromatic dream meadow – vivid, sublime & perpetually in motion - forever entangled, from childhood to death. Memories fast forward & rewind, a secret language shared.


Part 2 - Radiant Particulars : Those small, everyday moments that are somehow highly charged with meaning and radiance. Days flow like a river & most days, we cling to the raft of uncertainty & those luminous moments can make all the difference. A paean to the last days, curiosity is all there is.
