ZOË - The Rock

Zoë Alexis-Abrams' "solo" project often sees her joined by Kvesche Bijons-Ebacher and Johnny Spence, but this set was a true solo outing. Relying on a sampler rather than a looper to back her keyboard playing up has opened some space to explore her vast cathedrals of sound (and there was still some rather nifty glitch-looping with Alexis-Abrams latching onto sounds with her DD-7). That helps take her popsongs to some unexpected places, such as this one with its ABA structure that turns itself inside-out in the middle section.
