alice does computer music shares her new single ‘Coiled.’ The song is the second single from the cellist, songwriter, and producer’s upcoming debut album, Shoegaze 5G, due out August 4 via Jolt Music.
In ‘Coiled,’ alice does computer music entwines the fragments of her musical influences and memories in beautifully unmoored ways. Acoustic cello riffs are juxtaposed with bit-crushed drums that swirl into distorted, cavernous sound collage.
About the single, Gerlach says: “I keep accidentally pocket-dialing the SOS button on my iPhone’s lock screen. the pattern feels significant, like my subconscious is alerting me to an internal emergency. There’s a theory that there is no such thing as memory, only experience and its decay. With each occurrence I remember and forget the previous instances, lost in the uneasy stillness of being unmoored in time. coiled is a summoning of ghosts, a moment of panic as experience fragments into unawareness.”
