Published Jan 18, 2013We've already been introduced to Caila Thompson-Hannant as a member of the bands Think About Life and Shapes and Sizes, and now she's preparing to release an EP under her solo pseudonym Mozart's Sister. Hello is out on February 26 through Merok Records.
This four-song collection follows Mozart's Sister's 2011 EP, Dear Fear, and a press release notes that Hello leaves behind the "bedroom paranoia" of that prior release in favour of "glittering, entirely arresting radiance." Influences include Prince, mainstream R&B, classic trip-hop, Björk, and contemporary electronic music.
The announcement further explains, "Staggering between beautiful, bursting synth-filled pop melodies and the complicated, often harsh consequences of reality in her lyrics, she unites these elements together in an explosion of vibrant emotion and hypnotizing intensity."
Get a taste of the EP by scrolling past the tracklist to hear the eponymously titled "Mozart's Sister," which moves from dreamscape synths and soaring singing to quirky plinks and plonks and baby-talk vocals. The album cover is above.
Thompson-Hannant is currently working on her debut full-length.
