Squalloscope is Anna Kohlweis, who exists as a songwriter, music producer, multimedia artist, illustrator and singer based in Vienna, Austria. Exoskeletons for Children is her fifth full-length album following Soft Invasions (2012) and three releases under the Paper Bird moniker. Exoskeletons for Children emerged over the course of two years, beginning when Kohlweis had temporarily moved back into her childhood home in her 30s. Written and recorded in solitude in provincial Austrian attics and American basements, as well as in parents' and friends' houses, the record abides neither borders nor boxes.

On Exoskeletons for Children there is little feeling of nostalgia for the small town life of Kohlweis's upbringing. Rather there is a strong sense of identification with young people in these spaces. This record is about the bittersweetness of a homecoming as much as it is about the goodness of anger, protest, grieving, moving away and never looking back. There is a commanding nonchalance about Squalloscope, who bends and pitches layers of her own vocals to form the instrumental backbone of a record centered around a whole lot of words. Under the lyrics and vocal tracks is a tapestry of field recordings, beats, synths and guitars that add to the album's visually rich narrative.
