Yosa Peit new single ‘SHELLY/PEPPER PLANE’ from new album ‘Gut Buster’

Out today, Yosa Peit reveals two brand new tracks from her new album set for release on 26th April on Fire Records. Yosa will also be playing a special album launch show at Aktionshaus in Berlin on 4th May to celebrate its release.

New album ‘Gut Buster’  grapples with the destructive force of modern consumption, it’s an anti-capitalist statement that synthesizes intimacy and hostility; a surrealist-punk affirmation and a testament to Peit’s singular vision and unique approach. Spawning fleshy sonic escapades, a swarm of vigorously processed vocals and soulful bass, that’s set to a backdrop of visceral percussive structures. It’s full of roguish curiosity with an air of lo-fi experimentation and a platinum glint of pop sensibility.

“The album is really talking about our system from the perspective of the gut, from our inside. Faced with my own gut story making the record was a playful healing process set against this busted consumer media world. The album became kind of an anti-statement to our insane consumer planet. But also to expectations in the music industry.” Adds Yosa

The free-ranging sound of Yosa Peit recalls the intense arrangements of a cyber-era Prince with the surrealist tones of Arthur Russell and the vulnerability of Arca circa 2017. At the album’s core, “World Eaters”  blazes after humankind and our destruction of the earth with its scorching guitars. “I was born on a planet, I got hungry and I ate it.”  Consuming all that excess, terrestrial obliteration is human; we rot our own guts. That’s how it felt as Yosa battled with an auto immune gut disease while penning the record. So, in the closing track “Gut Is God (Gate of Discord)”  she raises a hopeful prayer (gut means “good” in German) to her insides, to reasoning, to learning with and from our bodies and those around us. Her one voice becomes a raw moving chorus crying out: we are all of this dying earth.

Even in the face of planetary doom and personal obstacles, Yosa evokes our propensity for mischief, humor and pleasure. ‘Gut Buster’  carries all the nutrients we need. Yosa brings us provisions by way of an eclectic creative process, interweaving sound through free experimentation and collaboration. Her unique approach to songwriting and production, which past collaborator Holly Herndon calls “super fresh”, has now garnered a cult following.

The album is a collective playground for creation to planetary reaches, congregating friends from Berlin, Cologne, and New York’s fuzzy musical underbelly: Employee, Funkycan, Gerry Franke, Glenn Astro, Nauker, Paingel, Tbz, and UCC Harlo. The record was mixed by Brainfeeder and Carlos Niño affiliate Benjamin Vukelic in Portland and Jan Brauer in Berlin.

Following a recent show on Noods, Yosa will be marking the release with special release shows across celebrated independent broadcasters – NTS, DublabKiosk and Radio Raheem.
