2018 release. Cédric Pin and Glen Johnson first played music together in 2005 as part of cult, London-based, Anglo-French ghost-rock group, Piano Magic. Despite Pin leaving London for the comparatively sleepy town of Alès in the Occitanie region of southern France in 2008, they kept in touch. Pin raised a family and exercised his talent for painting, whilst Johnson continued to record and tour across Europe and beyond with Piano Magic. Around 2013, the two mooted a new album, though this time of darker, more esoteric electronica, that was to become Second Language's 37th release, The Burning Skull. The album was greatly inspired by the key themes of vanitas and memento mori, ever-evident in contemporary, materialistic society and social media.
