The 7 track LP combines field recordings, synths, zi piano – all woven around flutes from Chilean-Norwegian musician Johanna Scheie Orellana.

Following her last two records, Sleeper in 2013 and Infinite Avenue in 2017, her latest project is fully instrumental. Villain explained that the decision to leave out “voice and lyrics got her out of her own head a bit”.

‘Type’ and ‘Observable Future’ are the first tracks shared of the LP’s release, accompanied by visuals from Solveig Lønseth and Ida Aurora Høyklev Ribu respectively.
