Olga Bell Incitation EP on Limited Edition 12" Vinyl
One Little Indian will release composer, producer and performer Olga Bell's Incitation EP in October 2015. The five-track EP follows Bell's acclaimed 2014 song cycle and album, Krai, which was described by The New York Times as, "at once a folkloric study of her homeland and a contemporary exercise in electronic production," and was included in The Quietus' Albums of the Year.
Bell's newest offering is a collection of deeply personal, urgent songs with her voice once more at the helm of her singular production. This time, "a kind of personal violence is the main force at work," she she says of the EP, "but it's more of a brawl with fear than something shell-shocked or confessional. The emotional language of Incitation recognises that while fear can be brutal, even crippling, it is also a necessary force for change and, perhaps most importantly, not a permanent state. Its remedy is simple: action."
Born in Moscow and raised in Alaska, Olga Bell is now based in Brooklyn where she makes original music, remixes and videos under her own name. She also makes dance music with British musician Tom Vek as half of Nothankyou. From 2011 to 2013 she toured as a vocalist and keyboardist with Dirty Projectors and Chairlift, and is currently at work on her third full-length album, set for release in early 2016 on One Little Indian.
