May Roosevelt – Air
“Air” is the new single by May Roosevelt from forthcoming LP “Junea” out on October 23 via Inner Ear. So much happens in Air’s 5:32, it’s a journey, an electronic symphony, a minimalist Gregorian chant, it flows through steel cathedrals, deep underwater and skirts the highest peaks, it’s ominous and enchanting. It pulsates with a very human heart, it’s the ghost in the machine.
“Junea” is May’s 4th solo release and her first for Inner Ear. Junea is a heroine of the modern digital world, where reality meets fiction through bridges made of electronic sounds and pixels. Musically, it could be said that she is an alter ego of May Roosevelt, adding new qualities to the artist’s existing musical identity (so I’m told).
I guess an important part of May’s existing musical reality, and what she is probably best known for, is as a thereminist. (see below). We think that May be about to change.
