Lawrence English’s Room40 Prepares Album by Geneva Skeen; Shares Video Single
'Double Bind' will drop digitally and on limited edition CD next month.
The seven-track album is one of four upcoming releases on Room40, which will also see albums from Akio Suzuki, Mike Cooper, and candlesnuffer. Double Bind, which will be available digitally and on limited-edition CD, was written over the past year during “a bleak but transformative period of time,” Skeen explains. Across the LP, the Los Angeles-based artist and composer crafts “an extra-verbal expression” of her interior experience, employing processed field recordings, fractured rhythms, and her own voice to unpack the unruly chaos of the last year.
Alongside the announcement, Room40 has shared a video for the album’s first single and title track, a beautifully desolate slice of ambient that is paired with fittingly woozy landscapes.
