“All Things Heavy” is the debut album from Berlin-based artist Mynolia, aka Maja Presnell. Out today on all digital platforms HERE, as well as limited edition vinyl HERE!
“I have no cultural or national identity whatsoever, and in that lack of anchor I think I just clung onto music like the lighthouse in the fog,” says Mynolia.
The young artist is especially gifted at crafting melodies, whether she’s phrasing her lyrics or collaging non-verbal singing. She has an intuitive sense of knowing where to layer, where to strip down, and where to be bare. Traditional folk choirs, eastern flute music, choral singing, and opera helped round out her vocal development. The electronic elements tilt the singer closer towards Men I Trust or Bat for Lashes. “I just spiral around facing every direction,” she says, and this explains her musical influences, songwriting habits, and philosophy on social change.

Gemma Ray has dropped a new track called Procession, and is the first to be taken from her forthcoming album “Gemma Ray & The Death Gang” out on Jan 20th 2023.
Listen to Procession and pre-order the limited splatter and/or eco-mix vinyl versions HERE
A visualiser for the track by artist Lucy Dyson can be viewed HERE
With Gemma Ray & The Death Bell Gang Ray takes an unexpected detour from her acclaimed psych-soul and torch-song oeuvre with a hard-edged experiment in cinematic electronica. Epic despite its underlying simplicity and groove, Gemma Ray & The Death Bell Gang blends the funereal and the sinister with tenderness and yearning, with a dash of automaton-pop and a Dada-esque playfulness for good measure. Front and centre is Gemma’s trademark stirring voice and harmonies, with sound design courtesy of Ralf Goldkind.Continue reading →
