Serum is made of 5 small electro-acoustic systems: slender gears feathering in complex geometries. Aylu designs audio spaces from Buenos Aires, mostly known for her potent, psychotropic juke and footwork experiments. Serum is a departure into freer and more diffuse compositional territory, and it is precisely a serum: 5 audio objects designed to bring the mind out of anxious confinement into broader space.
The Chicago wunderkind's debut album is half lo-fi hip-hop pianos and breakneck drumming, half polished pop songs full of orchestral arrangements and whimsical but melancholic melodies. Bandcamp Album of the Day Nov 23, 2020
