Eddi Front’s video for “Prayer” premieres today via Stereogum—watch it here. Stereogum praises the new track, saying Front’s “voice floats over sour notes and sinewy guitars and her own competing angelic choral runs.” “Prayer” is taken from Front’s debut album, Marina, out March 4.
Marina was recorded in Brooklyn with producer Dan Chen, whom Front found after years of recording independently of a producer, and was mixed by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr., Come). The album includes seven new songs from Front, including “Elevator,” which Stereogum called “a beautiful, evocative thing” when it debuted earlier this year. The album also features Front’s father, a professional violinist, on “Goldie” and “Sing Sing”
“The record was pieced together over the span of about a year, although it describes a mind frame I was in for several and references experiences and people from as far back as childhood,” Front says of the album. The new albumfollows Front’s self-titled debut EP, released in 2012 on Best Fit Recordings to great critical acclaim.
Eddi Front is the solo project of Brooklyn-based artist Ivana Carrescia. Her other projects include Gioia, a collaboration with Godmode Records founder Nick Sylvester.
