SINGLE RELEASE: SEPTEMBER 25
LABEL: INVERTED MUSIC
“A slow burning electro throbber… ” Electronic Sound
“otherworldly slice of throbbing electro pop…” GIITTV
Ethav proudly announces the arrival of her debut track, ‘Warrior’, released September 25, on Inverted Music. Her music is reminiscent of Face + Heel or Cash + Dave and ethereal in places like Seachange.
Warrior is a about rising triumphantly through the struggle and is a fusion of electro and electronica brushed with the subtlest touches of world music and classical influences. This track combines both ancient and modern influences with a poetry uniquely expressive and impressionistic. With the use of laptops and her bewitching voice, she creates this unique sound; falling somewhere between indie, electronica and poetry.
Persevering in the face of adversity, the track is a rallying cry to raise the spirits and steal your purpose. “I wanted ‘Warrior’ to encapsulate a modern woman through life’s struggles,” Ethav comments, “as if in a battlefield, with full determination to succeed no matter what life throws at her”.
As you’d expect from the artist whose video-only song ‘Sleep‘, created in collaboration with film-makers Domestic Infelicity, winning the British Animation Awards. ‘Warrior’ comes with an equally visually arresting promo. Director Cylan Shaffer draws on choreography from the University of Arizona to create an enthralling performance fusing the expression of contemporary dance and the primitive energy of tribal tradition.
