Unusual artist Esther Joy has released the second track from her upcoming record The Acid Caves Vol 1 (released April 27th), and it’s a warped ear-worm which continues to document the story of the character at the centre of the concept record: young alien Silipur.
The London-based producer’s electronic manipulations on new single ‘Day 4 (Landing)’ are mind-bendingly catchy, and Esther has accompanied them with the following explanation:
“This song is the second in the Acid Caves story, following a young alien ‘Silipur’ in a world where all intelligent lifeforms are able to see in a new dimension called ‘The Chaos’. The Chaos gives the ability to see, understand and manipulate emotional energy which is fuelling the universe. Humans are the only beings that lack this ability as a fixation on ego stunted their natural evolution.
‘Day 4 (Landing)’ is based on Silipur’s first day on Earth. She is overwhelmed by the psychological state of the planet and the emotional toxicity of it’s atmosphere. Humans cannot understand ‘The Chaos’ and have therefore left their planet to emotional ruin. I wanted this song to feel violent and intrusive, as if you are experiencing the extremity and destruction of earth for the very first time.”
We’re enthralled by Esther’s narratives and are highly anticipating the next slice. Listen to “Day 4 (Landing)” below, and follow Esther Joy’s alien tales on Facebook.
