PublicART (associates of Róisín Murphy, The Roots, Macy Gray) Premieres New Single, Announces Sept. 21st EP Release

Los Angeles-based electro-folk duo PublicART will release their new EP Modernika on September 21st. The record was produced and mixed by the band’s multi-instrumentalist Jan Ozveren, co-produced by singer Stevvi Alexander, with all songs co-written by both. Mastering was performed by multi-award winner Reuben Cohen (Iggy Pop, Pharrell Williams, Interpol). Modernika is available for pre-order now from iTunes.

The first single from the EP, “Montreux” was just exclusively premiered by BlackBook Magazine.” Of the song, Stevvi told the outlet “’Montreux’ is the kind of song you can get lost in. It’s transportive, visual and almost feels meditative. It always seems to take me out of the moment I’m in and deliver me to a much cooler, melodic landscape. The track sounds simple because space is built into it but it’s actually quite complex and crafty.”

On the record as a whole, Jan adds, ”Modernika is an exploration into electronic textures. Drawing from our favorite R&B influences of the 80’s, we mixed acoustic instruments with analog synth loops and drum machines. These songs will draw you in and make you dance and dream.”

A video for “Montreux” is currently being prepared, and the band will soon announce a slate of live dates in support of Modernika.
