about

"Step inside a Lynchian underworld that takes its cues from Bill Callahan’s alt-country-tinged Smog project and indie-folk icon Elliot Smith"
DAZED MAGAZINE

"A melancholic record noticeably influenced by Neil Young and Bob Dylan... The soulful excursions testify to passion and intensity in songwriting. Even a Pink Floyd psychedelia is noticable here"
POWER METAL MAGAZINE

“Has the ‘live in session’ feel of classic albums, such as Beggar’s Banquet, while also feeling vital and modern”
BOYS BY GIRLS MAGAZINE

"Otherworldly existential blues for the 21st Century"
NOWNESS

"If you can do something with the strange drug-shattered solo work of Syd Barrett, you will also well receive The Sirens of Titan"
MUSIKREVIEW

"Apocalypse Sessions is a dark, understated acoustic-led offering with classical depth and scope”
FLAUNT MAGAZINE

"A modern blues outfit whose songs are focused on an extreme present" - THE HUNGER MAGAZINE

'Lyrically, Apocalypse Sessions contains the hallmarks of melancholia, desire and transgression that underpins all John-Paul's work, inviting the listener into a raw, flawed and poetic dreamtime'
ISRA BOX


The Sirens of Titan are a musical project by the author, poet and songwriter John-Paul Pryor, whose debut novel Spectacles has garnered comparisons to the work of JG Ballard and Jean Genet [Like Genet, Pryor trawls the depths of a nightmare, finding beauty in his children of misfortune” – AnOther Magazine] and the musicians Sami Salo and Jez Leather.

The debut album Apocalypse Sessions was recorded over a three-month period with the producer Andy Strange in a series of live sessions. It is intentionally 'live' as a riposte to the contemporary over-production of music.

Apocalypse Sessions is available on iTunes and Spotify via Schubert Music Publishing and is released April 2017 on Bruit Blanc records (France) and Smile records (Europe).

The Sirens of Titan wider collective of musicians features Emma Cooper (saxophone) Phoebe White (vocals), Sarah Kaldor De Winter (cello), Courtney Murray (vocals), Mike Pickering (drums), Matt Millership (piano), Robbie PInna (bass).
