The EP, which is self-titled, will be released through Mute and Spoon on February 4th. Fans not entirely familiar with Can’s work may know them as the band that Spoon got their name from.

As the band’s press release states, Cyclopean as a name is a metaphor for their music.

Cyclopean forms are beautiful, massive and intriguing structures that interlock, intersect and connect seemingly contradictory components.
