SHELLEY'S ON ZENN-LA
Following collabs wth radiohead, mica levi, and laurel halo, Coates takes centre stage with an unclassifiable, wildly creative straddling of organic and programmed sounds – ‘out there’ album of the year anyone? the Cellist, composer, and producer develops a semi-absurd narrative backdrop for this record, based on fictional nightclubs in stoke and imaginary planets.
Thus an otherworldly feel permeates this sublime pieces that take as much from 90’s rave culture as they do from modern-classical composition. It’s the work of a true original, with melody also woven into the seams of the music to create a highly inviting smorgasbord to get stuck in to. Lightness and weight dance together on a record that will continue to reveal its nuances long after you’ve (sensibly) taken a copy home. arthur russell fans may have found their new guru. “The cosmic dreamscape that Coates creates seems to be constantly shape-shifting and keeping the listener on their toes… residing on its own intergalactic plane” 8/10 – loud and quiet, "(a) memorable, moving achievement" 4* - mojo
