A first digital release in 2015 was followed by this 6-tracks mini-album in late 2017. Throbbing beats are punctuated with melodies, vocals floating in layers, their dreamy veil disguising a strong message. Strong and anything but stable. Lead song “Genderland” with its rumbling bass, syncopated electro-reggae rhythm and dub effects, it’s Ace of Bass filtered through Darkwave. Paradise throbs and clanks and drones and pulses with expectation, celestial multitracked vocals. Lines, by contrast, is a bubbling and burbling, bass-driven affair, complete with a melodic nod to West End Girls (The Pet Shop Boys).
Social Front marries its message of female empowerment to bouncy electropop, influenced by post-punk performance artist and No Wave singer Lizzy Mercier Descloux. Calculations draws the EP to a close in a fittingly anthemic manner. If first (digital) EP “Black Devotion” was all about searching for a sound, her new recording signals a shift, a drift towards self-determination, a PVC- clad step into the murky mixed-message waters of 21st century gender politics.
