Rïcïnn - the one-woman French powerhouse, whose oeuvre elicits the ethereal realms of outsider artists Diamanda Galás, Chelsea Wolfe, and Klaus Nomi - offers up her debut album Lïan on vinyl. Rïcïnn's voice became her own due to the baroque / triphop unit Corpo-Mente, Öxxö Xööx - an "avant-garde" doom project, and live interpretations in the death / baroque / breakcore project Igorrr. It was during these collaborations that the beginnings of what would become her first album began.
Language is the reason behind Rïcïnn, in reaction to her difficulty to express herself to a world in her "native tongue," the need to reach for a higher form of communication and translate her imagination to others. Still as a child, she concocted magical remedies and verbal formulas to help others heal their wounds.
Using her voice as a tool of emotional conduction, she manages to combine her modern and classical musical influences into a surreal concoction, alternating between "doomish/metal/electronic" sounds with methods of baroque (sometimes nearly Gregorian) compositions. Resulting in a celestial dance, moving into an unexpected explosion of terror, each sacred in their own right.
