EMA The Future's Void on LP + Download Coupon
Erika M. Anderson first graced the limelight under the guise of EMA in May 2011, when the brilliantly scuffed debut album Past Life Martyred Saints was released to a multitude of acclaim. After fronting the genre-defying cult duo Gowns, Past Life Martyred Saints offered a deeper glimpse into the world of EMA.
If Past Life Martyred Saints was an inward exploration of human relationships and their toll, The Future’s Void catapults them out into space, both thematically and musically. Drawing from references as diverse as The Neuromancer, NIN and riot grrl, the album meditates on universal themes of how we interact with the wider world and how that interaction is increasingly modified by technology.
“This record is the sound of resistance to digital commodification” Erika explains. “I naturally gravitate towards hooks and melodies and in some ways, the structure of these songs is the poppiest yet. The harshness and production strikes a balance with that so they don’t sound like they could be on adverts.”
“An Industro Fuzz Giant - ‘The Future’s Void’ will swallow early 2014.” - Spin
