Polish sound designer and cellist Karolina Rec (a.k.a. Resina) will drop her sophomore album, Traces, on 130701 Recordings on July 6. 

The new album lands two years on from Karolina’s critically acclaimed, self-titled debut, presenting a visceral, tense, and thrilling LP. Much of the material on Traces, like her debut, was recorded as single live takes, however, this time, the focus has also been placed on sound design and the detail of the compositions rather than purely live recordings. Karolina’s voice also takes center stage, appearing on more than half of the album’s tracks and functioning as haunting, emotive layers that have been looped and processed. Traces also features contributions from drummer/percussionist Mateusz Rychlicki, who features on a number of tracks.

In support of the forthcoming release, 130701 has offered up a full stream of the lead track, “Resin,” available to stream via the player below.
