DERADOORIAN ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM FIND THE SUN, OUT 22 MAY VIA ANTI-
SHARES LEAD SINGLE ‘SATURNINE NIGHT’
Listen to ‘Saturnine Night’ here:
Visionary art pop musician Deradoorian has signed to ANTI- Records and announced her first album with the label. Titled Find The Sun, the celestial ten-track record will be released on May 22. Inspired by the freedom of Can and the singing style of Damo Suzuki as well as the influence of Indian spirituality and jazz masters like Pharoah Sanders and Sun Ra, Deradoorian gravitates to transportive, shamanic sounds on this record, wielding bells, flutes, and gongs in service of a record guided by the spirits.
“Overall, a lot of these songs are about trying to reach yourself – how to be your most brilliant self,” Deradoorian says. “…because we come from a culture that doesn’t actually support this. We are so deeply programmed to obey societal boundaries that we don’t even know the power we contain within.”
These songs started as sketches, later moulded into stronger concepts during a summer spent in the Rockaways, writing lyrics and talking about music with Deradoorian’s friend and percussionist Samer Ghadry. Along with Ghadry’s frequent collaborator Dave Harrington, they would take those songs across the country to Marin County, California’s Panoramic House, an analog studio with a live room with wall-sized windows that gaze out upon the Pacific Ocean from atop Mt. Tamalpais. The room’s energy and spaciousness serves as the band’s fourth member, its ancient beams and cavernous ceilings colouring the drum tracks with an innate sense of space.
This summer, following a US support tour with Stereolab in May, Deradoorian will be touring in Europe, with UK dates to be announced soon. All upcoming shows are listed here.
