Published May 29, 2014When reviewing Mozart's Sister last year at NXNE, we wrote, "while she remains unsigned, she seems highly signable." Inevitably, the pop adventurer known as Caila Thompson-Hannant has now inked a record deal.
She has signed with Paper Bag Records in Canada and Asthmatic Kitty in the U.S., with her album Being due out on August 5.
According to a press release, "Being is Mozart's Sister expressing macrocosmic ideas about life with panache and abundant hooks," resulting in a reportedly fractured pop sound.
Thompson-Hannant self-produced the record "using a cheap sound card and Ableton software, approaching it with a do-it-all-by-my-fucking-self ideology."
