About this item

EYE is back. Metamujer marks the third installment on the Knekelhuis label and the latest chapter in Laurène Exposito’s life. Recorded on various locations ranging from the Swiss mountains to the chalky coasts of Brittany, "Metamujer" is an 8-track ode to salty love and closeness to nature, a tribute to a modest lifestyle à la Henry David Thoreau. Far from being praise for self-sufficiency, this new LP is deeply influenced by Laurène’s environment. We can hear Korg MS-10 created synthetic waves (Sanatorium) and birds (Luscinia), but one can also catch her singing in Italian, one of 3 languages spoken in Switzerland. Still minimalist and yet more aesthetically diverse, her new sounds are on the edge of EBM and synth pop, between classic minimal wave tunes and rustic ballads on acid.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: It's been a cracking couple of months for fans of coldwave, minimal wave and superior synth pop, and the latest LP from EYE is another chilly killer. At times she edges into EBM with 4/4 aggression, at others she embraces the bontempi cosmic of Wendy Carlos or late 70s Sheffield.
