Lief Hall 'Transform' (EP stream)
Published Jan 15, 2015We first met Lief Hall as a member of the Vancouver electro experimenters MYTHS, but these days she's living in Berlin and making music under her own name. This previously gave us the vocal album Voices, and now we can hear her latest solo endeavour: an EP called Transform, which arrived digitally today (January 15).
These three songs aren't quite as jarring as Hall's work with MYTHS, but they're similarly adventurous. The seven-minute "Sun Death" sets dreamy pop vocals atop a dark bed of buzzing synths and flickering electronic rhythms. "Glass Machine" is a little starker in its use of machine-gun drum machines, while "Destination" tones down the tension in favour of spooky, harmonized incantations.
According to a press release, these songs "[explore] notions of love, identity and fear in the post human age." Hear Transform below for yourself and pick it up over on Bandcamp.
