In this episode of Out From Under, I talk to Melbourne-based experimental artist Ela Stiles.
Taking a radical detour from her early work with Sydney bands Songs and Bushwalking, Ela’s remarkable debut self-titled album mixed acappella, drone and tape loops, and her follow-up, Molten Metal, added dark synths, found sounds and drum machines into the mix. Running in parallel to her experimental approach to sound, her use of bare vocals and layered harmonies also highlights her deft expertise as a songwriter.
Episode 3 of Out From Under is the first of a regular playlist series featuring newly released Australian eclectic and experimental music. In this episode we hear tracks from Fatti Frances’ latest project V/A; LUCIANBLOMKAMP in a remix by Marcus Whale; debut releases from The First Baboon Civilisation and HVISKE; soundtrack work from Karli White and The Vainglories; plus music from Mollusc (pictured), Ela Stiles, Exotic Snake and the new solo release from The Night Terrors’ Miles Brown.
