Virginia Wing: World contact (Single, 2014)

Building on the experimentations found on their 7” on Critical Heights and a 12” EP on Faux Discx, Measures Of Joy encompasses spoken-word passages, brooding electronics and musique concrete influences to create songs that are at once immediate and truly strange. From the metronomic pulse of “World Contact” and the avant-pop of “Marnie” to the sonic experimentation of “Gold Thread”, Measures Of Joy is a record that consistently surprises and ensnares; a collection of hallucinogenic pop-songs played with a sense of urgency and an experimental verve. Virginia Wing is Alice Merida Richards, Sam Pillay and Sebastian Truskolaski. The album was recorded at Holy Mountain Studios by Misha Hering.
