Wordplay, symbolism, idiosyncratic spirituality, cheekiness, contradiction… Eartheater ‘s world is as fascinating as its creator. Also known as New York-based artist Alexandra Drewchin, this truly unique voice in contemporary music melds foley-filled digital production, a three-octave vocal range and experimental pop composition, creating detailed sonic tapestries and romantic, gestural electronica in the process.
Following two albums on US label Hausu Mountain, Drewchin recently released her latest LP on PAN. “IRISIRI” is an album of sonic and lyrical contradictions in which voices collide with modular synths, pumping kick drums, technoid stabs, granular soundscapes, crushed metal and relentless arpeggios, creating a shifting network of abstract structures and mutated genres which speaks in numerous sonic tongues. It also features guest spots by equally compelling artists such as Moor Mother and Odwalla1221.
Eartheater’s viscerally emotive performance as part of the PAN showcase at MIRA 2018, on Thursday, 8th November, will mark her first ever live show in Barcelona. We can’t wait for the opportunity to experience her world.
