On April 29th, producer and singer Doss will release her debut on Acéphale, a self-titled, four track EP that introduces listeners to a world of curved, shining surfaces and strobing colors. Doss wholeheartedly takes inspiration from the various forms of dance music that emerged in the early 90s while sidestepping any notion of revivalism. She projects “Electronica,” and the cultural baggage that comes with it, into the contemporary landscape, moulding and adapting it to sound simultaneously nostalgic and futuristic. The music is bold, emotional and unabashedly pop, bursting with color and imagination. But beyond the sheen there is a complex fragility reminding us that glossy fantasies are just as interesting for their subtext.
As a companion piece to the EP, Doss and Acéphale have been developing an immersive online experience with Los Angeles design studio Oval-X (How To Dress Well, CFCF). Visitors can currently register for the site by entering their email in exchange for a download of the first song from the EP, “The Way I Feel.” In the coming weeks and months, users will gain further access to the site as more and more of Doss’ world unfolds.
