Jane Weaver – The Architect EP
12″ 45RPM Vinyl EP, download card included.
“A perfect example of her motorik psychedelia” NPR
“Otherworldy synth-pop” Rolling Stone
“A fascinating career with an album that melds cult cornerstones into a lean and thrillingly addictive slice of unearthly pop” Guardian
“Using motorik rhythms and ancient technology to create music that brims with urgency and originality, there is a real creative bravery at work here” Mojo
‘With one eye on the dancefloor and another on those sprawling existential questions’ (The Quietus), ‘The Architect’ sees Jane Weaver evolving with an aero-lite melodicism, the drum heavy vivacious pop song evokes vivid images of early Modernist art, Archigram blue-prints with a rigid back-bone of Eames worthy construction.
Directly inspired by Hilma af Klint’s séances, spiritualism and the science of anthroposophy that formed the artist’s abstract paintings, Weaver finds herself in a transformative state channeling her inner spirituality, it’s place within her music and the cosmos. Shifting perspectives with her meditative vocal explorations and oneiric flow on ‘Code’. Eight-minute psych-pop opus ‘Element’ is richly melodic replete with pulsating analogue synths, unrelenting motorik rhythms and incessant beats.
The perfect antidote to those longing for more music since the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Modern Kosmology’, the release features title track alongside unreleased new tracks and a special remix by Finders Keepers’ Andy Votel.
