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.
An enigmatic creative force for sure, Jean’s singles to date have been nothing short of sublime, and new one ‘Be Who You Are (Skyforest edit)’ is no different. It is lifted from Big Grey Sun #1, the first instalment of an ongoing seven-volume multi-media project, one “centered around the idea of a post-human utopia.” Hushed, dreamy vocals hover above deep, burrowing bassline groove that meanders slow while distorted guitars burn slowly amid a haze of warm fuzz – ‘Be Who You Are’ is lush, lavish and dripping with rich melody. Hypnotic and transfixing, residing in a moody atmospheric world of rich textures and dreamy allure, ‘Be Who You Are’ offers a much less tense and terse take on Death Hags’ brand of dream/synth-pop.
