London-based producer Esther Joy is an intriguing character. Having spent the last year touring with Charli XCX’s band & collaborating with artists like Tourist, she’s re-emerged with new single ‘Day 1 (Silipur Leaves Home)’, taken from her upcoming concept EP, The Acid Caves Vol 1 (set for release April 27th)
The Acid Caves Vol 1 is based on a supernatural universe created in Esther’s mind. Speaking of the album’s concept, and of the character Silipur in her new single, Esther explains:“The Acid Caves is based in a universe in which all planets are connected by an energy system called ‘The Chaos’. The Chaos is the energy that sustains all planets & all life forms. It’s the emotional, the spiritual & the supernatural.
Over the last millennium, all lifebloods (non-humans) developed the ability to physically see and manipulate this energy, leading to huge advancements in better mental health and supernatural power. For humans, however, their overpowered ego and transfixion with technology significantly stunted their natural evolution and are now the only life-form unable to see or understand The Chaos.”
This story will follow Silipur, a lonely, cynical lifeblood who chooses to abandon her planet illegally for Earth. She is one of many who will try to break through the temporary gate in hope of tasting Earth’s purest energy.”
