About this item
‘Somewhere Else’, Profligate’s first album since 2014, deftly balances seeming opposites - chaos and composition, melody and noise, programmed and live instrumentation.
Featuring contributions by LA poet / musician Elaine Kahn and Chrissy Jones, this diverse yet cohesive album walks the line between dark pop and noise.
“Synthesizers flutter airless and inviting and are grounded to solidity with brooding and distinguished bass” - Impose.
“‘Black Plate’ features Kahn's lyrics and vocals, around which Profligate’s teetering synths and atonal crackles swirl like snakes on acid.” - The Fader.
“Different facets of noise and structured arrangements that ebb and flow brilliantly and make for a fresh experience on every listen.” - Impose.
“Based on the striking and natural contrast between pop and noise, distorted and clean sounds, the strident but functional and amazing juxtaposition of the ethereal slightly gloomy Elaine’s voice and Noah's crispy and discordant electronic textures” - WhiteLight / WhiteHeat.
“You could never quite call Noah Anthony’s music hi-def, but this delectable slice of post-punk pop comes close.” - Resident Advisor.
“Mixes noise, industrial and new wave synth pop.” - Warzawa.
“A tense industrial track with tearing and bubbling sounds that, in context, are actually kind of soothing.” - The Fader.
