Celebrating her upcoming Hyperdub debut Quarantine, Laurel Halo delivers a sensually demanding track titled “Light + Space.” The Ann Arbor native moves away from her avant-pop sounds and delves into blissful minimal electronic elements for the closing track of her forthcoming full-length offering. Ms. Halo further offers some words on the new LP which are likely to explain her creative approach to the new record.
“I started out with a ton of echo and reverb on the vocals, but it sounded supremely boring to me, so I was curious how they’d sound dry in the arrangements and got rid of most of the wetness…It was tempting to use autotune but I decided against it because there’s this brutal, sensual ugliness in the vocals uncorrected, and painfully human vocals made sense for this record” — Laurel Halo, on her new record Quarantine
Quarantine is out May 28 in the UK and June 5 in the U.S. via Hyperdub. Stream “Light + Space” below.
