Death Hags is the multifaceted project of Los Angeles-based, French electronica artist, Lola Jean. Working mostly from the secluded hideaway hills of East LA, Jean crafts hypnotic, futuristic and minimal electronica inspired by the likes of Brian Eno, Björk and Twin Peaks .
The latest release from the enigmatic creative force that is Death Hags, is new single ‘Oublie Moi’. Amid a moody atmospheric world, like predecessor ‘Electrochemical Communication’, it is a hypnotic, futuristic and post-industrial-themed track. Fuelled by driving synths and industrial beats, ‘Oublie Moi’ is imbued with a nervous tension that expands, contracts and then evaporates to reveal a sparse shadowy futuristic post-industrial world. It is a hypnotic, transfixing and moody track with Jean delivering an internal monologue, softly spoken entirely in French, from the perspective of character Josie Packard. This is just magnificent, and with ‘Electrochemical Communication’ and now ‘Oublie Moi’ has fast become one of my favourite new finds of 2019.
Listen to ‘Oublie Moi’ below and while your at it, ‘Electrochemical Communication’ comes highly recommended also.
