Loraine James has announced a new album.
Gentle Confrontation drops via Hyperdub this September and is James’ fourth album since her debut, Detail, back in 2018. The album features contributions from Marina Herlop, keiyaA and George Riley and takes influence from “math rock and emo-electronic such as DNTEL, Lusine, and Telefon Tel Aviv”.
