LoneLady will release new album 'Former Things' on June 25th.
The new album saw the electronic artist decamp from her native Manchester to London, working from Somerset House Studios.
Long walks in the metropolis fuelled her creative ambitions, overhauling her sound while introducing fresh elements in the process.
"I was hungry for a change of scene," she comments in a press note. "Born and bred in Manchester, my home city is like walking around a giant living diary, an archeology of myself, layered with memories."
"Following meetings with Somerset House Studios Director Marie McPartlin, in June 2016 I moved from Manchester to London to become a Studio member. I set up a new studio in The Rifle Range, an 18th-Century Naval shooting gallery. In this long, narrow concrete room I set up my studio to be part art-installation, part nightclub where I could turn the volume up loud and project Cabaret Voltaire super-8 videos and Ingmar Bergman films across the stone walls."
"I was located at the dramatic heart of it all, not far from Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace - quite a change from my previous studios nestled in the crumbling darklands of Manchester’s outskirts."
New album 'Former Things' was constructed in this environment, and it's led by frisky new electro groover 'Fear Colours'.
Itchily infectious, it's described by its maker as “an electroscape of funk, crunch and vocoder-ed fear!”
