INTO LIGHT

Singles with Video. Released as part of the DRESS labels get born again BLACK PHASE of the previously unseen/unreleased. 

MONEY TREE recorded in 2011, a crunchy distorted-bass bounce, whispered and imploring complaint of a song. The slapstick noir performance video fro the song was improvised on the streets of Hackney Wick, London. 

AMERICANA/REMIX is Rob Tolson’s elevated, beat driven re-imagining of the original AMERICANA - a dark candy electronica meets country track from debut album, A WALK IN and has a sepia solo dancing-with-myself performance video. Both track videos are collaborations between The Electra Woods and artist/video maker Dean Brannagan.

A WALK IN debut album

Written, recorded and produced in a house at the edge of a city and a forest, the songs likewise fuse urban with pastoral. Natural, acoustic elements (harp, guitar, human voice) are sampled and processed alongside beats and synthetic textures. The album is accompanied by a series of videos that reflect the poetic, hallucinogenic journeying of the songs in visual codes of monochrome, Technicolor, neon and sepia and similarly use found, processed digital source material alongside performance to recreate the enhanced super nature world of the album.

The EP moves from the dark lyricism of DIY Country & Vangelis of opening track Motor, Larry Heard homage titling of the classically infused Washing Machine and sly cruise ship easy listening of FAO Jazz, through to the final torch song minimalism of Rain.

Tracklist:

1. Motor
2. Aqualung

3. Washing Machine
4. Violent Homespun
5. F.A.O. Jazz
