Aphir – ‘Can’t Comfort’ (Provenance)
Stream / Download.
Aphir closely follows the release of her 2017 album Twin Earth with a new, non-album cut, Can’t Comfort backed by remixes from Provenance label mates, KAIA and Arrom.
On Can’t Comfort Aphir notes: “I feel that a lot of people, young women especially, are taught that sometimes you have to exhaust yourself looking after other people before you’re allowed to look after your own needs, and this song is a rejection of that”.
Aphir is the solo electronic project of songwriter and producer, Becki Whitton.
As Aphir, Becki has performed her glitched-out vocal soundscapes around Australia and internationally, including her performance at Berlin’s 2016 Music Tech Fest. Her work with indigenous singer/songwriter, Denni, saw her take to the main stage at the 2015 Falls Festival.
Aphir’s 2017 record for Provenance, ‘Twin Earth’, sees the firm foundation of her layered vocal arrangements inflected with luminous alien samples.
