RIYL: ethereal pop, hypnotic soundscapes, immersive sonic environment
Stereogum Names Katie Dey an “Artist to Watch”
Stream New Track “Fear O’ The Light”
Flood Network Out August 12, 2016
on Joy Void Recordings
Joy Void Recordings is excited to announce the newest addition to their roster, Australian recording artist Katie Dey who will release her new LP Flood Network on August 12, 2016. Stereogum named Dey an “Artist to Watch” today and shared the track “Fear O’ The Light” off the upcoming record alongside an in-depth interview on her writing process and the new record. According to Stereogum’s James Rettig, Dey’s music “exhibit[s] a sonic complexity and emotional dexterity that feels unprecedented, and evades simple explanation. The joy of Katie Dey is in the experience.
Flood Network is currently available for pre-order from Joy Void.
Dey’s ‘nightmare pop’ weaves through gorgeous and unexpected sound- scapes – at times weirdly off-putting, at others beautiful and ethereal – all anchored by a hypnotic sense of melody. Following 2015’s Orchid Tapes-issued critical darling asdfasdf, Flood Network further explores the beauty in chaos and even destruction. Shape-shifting interludes realign the listener’s perspective between immersive sonic environments where melody and lyrics could mean anything, everything and nothing all at once.
