Zoe Reddy | MACHINE
June 14th 2019
Newcomer Zoe Reddy joins Phantom Limb for the release of her stunning debut EP MACHINE, a fascinating middle ground between avant-R’n’B and experimental music. A uniquely styled and fully-formed initial offering, MACHINE represents a new artist with clear vision and identity.
Named after and inspired by the rhythmic qualities of everyday motorised objects, MACHINE acts as a soundtrack to the 21st century life in which we are so surrounded by and immersed in technology as to become deaf to its sounds. Captivated by this constant generation of non-musical sounds, Reddy recorded washing machines, blenders and other motorised objects about the house to form rhythmic foundations to her songs. Using these starting points, the record took shape as a meeting point of electro-acoustic sound processing, electronic production, and Zoe’s love of dance music.
MACHINE is released by Phantom Limb on digital formats, a limited edition cassette and as a YouTube visual EP in June 2019, preceding Zoe’s debut album.
