Last year, Lisel – a.k.a. avant-pop singer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and artist Eliza Bagg – released her remarkable self-produced solo debut, Angels on the Slope, via Luminelle. Drawing on her vast areas of expertise to create an other-wordly landscape where one wanders between the gauzy and ethereal and distorted, beat-driven pop. Now, prior to her SXSW debut and following a recent performance as a soloist in the iconic New York Philharmonic, Lisel announces a new double-single.
“Specters” / “Rabbit Rabbit” takes you on a vivid and lush journey that blends nostalgic synthesizers, digitally manufactured voice and breath samples, and glitchy, distorted beats with Renaissance-inspired vocal polyphony. Lisel’s voice is the basis for the two maximalist songs, both of which attempt to process the anxious euphoria of our era by gazing into and ringing in the imminent apocalypse within a distinctly 21st-century pastiche pop landscape. The double-single, which is a collaboration with producer/electronic artist Ben Babbitt, who recently co-wrote and helped to produce many of the songs on Angel Olson’s All Mirrors, is out now digitally HERE.
