Introducing: GEL SET. Announces her new album ‘Body Copy’ on 2MR. Hear the first track

Gel Set is the solo project from multimedia artist Laura Callier. She returns with new album ‘Body Copy’, coming October 20th on 2MR. Today she gives us a first taste of the record; the dreamy,  gauzy electro-pop “Don’t You Miss Me”.

LISTEN “DON’T YOU MISS ME” HERE

The record was born after a move from Chicago to LA to pursue sound design and post production. Callier came to find loneliness in this overpopulated city, searching for familiar faces at shows, stores, sidewalks. Strangers looked like variants of loved ones which helped Gel Set come to the realization that the world is full of body copies.

‘Body Copy’ is an album of psychedelic electro. Laura’s softly spoken, trance like vocals are accompanied by experimental bedroom production which includes a number of film samples / sound effects she gathered at an unpaid job she was working.

Gel Set is the art that Callier makes in her noisy Koreatown room with her music having been compared to Chris and Cosey. She is influenced by Karen Dalton’s raw emotion, the abstract storytelling and dissonance of late Scott Walker, the synthesis of Mort Garson and Tangerine Dream and the heavy sounds of Hogg. All of these influences are apparent in this record however Laura succeeds in creating something truly unique and individual which does really have you answering her question of “What is the content of your body’s copy?”
