The first signing to the new record label from music website The Quietus, William Doyle is a Bournemouth multi-instrumentalist who mashes electronica, Krautrock and folk to shiver-inducing ends. Named after a dockland district in his hometown, as East India Youth Doyle has sloughed off what he describes as an unfortunate back history in meat and veg guitar rock in favour of an altogether more eclectic sound. "It was rubbish," he says of his early career, "playing with hundreds of Oasis-y, laddy, pubby rock bands.
"Brian Eno's Another Green World is one of my favourite albums, I like his mid-‘70s stuff," he adds, explaining the influences behind forthcoming debut Total Strife Forever. NOT a dig at Foals, he insists. “The guy has shaped music more than any one person, I reckon, and I love, coming from that, the Berlinperiod Bowie, Heroes and Low, especially the second halves of those records, where they go into the instrumental stuff, that was a big influence. Fuck Buttons were a big thing, I've listened to them quite a lot over the last couple of years, that's been a revelation. Shostakovich as well."
