Weekly vibrations to soundtrack your favorite 48 hours…


12 May 2018

VIVE LA VOID “is the new solo project of SANAE YAMADA, co-founder and keyboard player
of Moon Duo. She wrote and recorded her self-titled debut LP over a two-year period time.
The result is an undulating blend of ethereal swirl, low end thrumming, and electric crackle, buoyed by Yamada’s understated but captivating vocal melodies and her striking lyrics.”

Yamada told in a press statement: “I wanted the voice to have a kind of ghostly quality, to emerge from and recede back into the song, or to pass over it like weather. It’s one of many layers of sound, which are meant to blend together in such a way that on one listen you might hear one thing, and on another listen you might hear something else, so the music seems to change even as it stays the same.”

SCORE: Here’s a mystifying record of spellbinding electro excursions, transcendent
vibes and synths colored reveries about humankind, daily life and the true nature
of existentialism. Yamada’s whispering voice intensifies the heavily mysterious tone
of her enrapturing trips. The overall sonic timbre is obscure and equivocal, yet very
accessible in sound and vision. An overall illuminating experience to absorb on your
own, with dimmed lights. Activate your earphones, the moony cruise starts here…
