The Room Below – Healing Scaphoids EP
Following the release of the ‘Homemade Waves’ EP in 2015, The Room Below returns to Don’t Be Afraid with his second EP for the label. The title ‘Healing Scaphoids’ reflects on the period of time he spent constructing the tracks, during which he suffered two separate broken wrists whilst cycling around London. One right, one left. Both time, the Scaphoid bone! Unfortunately, only one of the wrists healed properly and the EP retains a slightly broken feel, steering away from four-to-the-floor territory, and with London as a clear sonic influence.
2017 has been a productive year for Henry Keen aka The Room Below. As Soundspecies, alongside brother Olly, he released a collaborative album with Afro-Cuban percussion group Ache Meyi, performing live at the Barbican in May to follow the previous year’s appearance at the Manana Cuba Festival in Santiago de Cuba.. Henry also has a solo EP forthcoming on rising New York label Maddjazz, due for release in mid September.
