"This thrilling piece – surely the most kinetic non-dancefloor record in an age" [Lend Me Your Ears]
Pomperipossa Records, curated by Anna von Hausswolff, is delighted to announce the forthcoming release of the first album by drøne. Field recordings, short wave radio, modular synth all combine to form an enticing, arresting, moving journey of electrically-charged dissonance, drones and electronic melodies… Anna calls it “a jewel”.
"A very hot day in the hills above Los Angeles… only possible to work in the mornings because of the sweltering afternoon heat, so all a bit frantic, but with a kink in time. There is no wifi-controlled air conditioning; the car is electric-powered and charging up. It has barely rained for months, (if not years) and the hoses are working overtime. Its an analogue session; Mark’s modular synth set up is working furiously and overheating. We are pushing sounds through and seeing what works… and things gradually take shape. The forms seem to determine themselves; how much control do we have? How much do we want? Some peculiar things start to happen and the haze bends. Some of the sounds seem alive and are quick to reform as we struggle to contain them, like trying to stuff snakes into a bag. The sounds moan and sing, forming their own phonemes.”

Biosphere berce mon cerveau depuis la découverte il y a 15 ans de l'album Substrata. C'est peu dire que chaque album, parfois dur à apprivoiser devient ensuite un besoin inexplicable, tant ils m'apportent un bien-être cérébral.

This is a beautiful album, a mix of field recordings and music blended into a journey around the world. One moment you're on the street weaving between cars and bicycles, then you find yourself in a temple hearing the religous chants, then a small boy is whispering in your ear. An album I frequently return to and a trip worth taking your ears on. James Newcombe
