Forged from the depths of London, eventually finding Berlin as her sanctuary, Perera Elsewhere summons lost souls and presage of tomorrow in her craft. Acting on instinct rather than mathematics, incorporating organic elements that compliment and co-exist with robotics, carefully reserving space for her haunting yet soothing vocal passes...these are the bricks and mortar of Perera's waking dreams. From the grit of dark club to the absorption of indigenous sounds & styles along her travels, Perera melds these inspirations into her own semi-acoustic, abstract and pop-tinged bliss.
Prophetic revelations put to tape. A message in a bottle delivered through cryptic vocals laid to a smoky atlas, guiding followers to a new translation of the world as we know it. These are just shadows of the sentiment that Perera Elsewhere delivers on 'Everlast', her 12-track debut LP for Friends of Friends. Touching on topics ranging from the corruption of organized religion, gender discrimination and technological advancements leading to human over-dependance, her vision couldn't be more focused.
Building off the sultry electronic art-pop blueprint of her acclaimed 2013 debut 'Everlast', 'All Of This' is the next compelling chapter in Perera Elsewhere’s sonically adventurous progression.
Written and recorded in Berlin, Istanbul, and Mumbai over the course of three years, 'All Of This' expands on the downtempo rhythms and ornate organic/electronic instrumentation focusing on folding hypnotic, moody atmospheres into compelling song-craft traversing trip-hop, avant R&B, and experimental folk. A quiet tension haunts throughout the record's instinctual arrangements and movements. The album's first single "Something's Up" strikes a sweet spot between eerie ambience and pop intention, with an immersive groove that slithers alongside Perera's soulful lead
