Catch of the Week: ‘Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’

"Here's one for the electronic- and experimental music aficionados!

This catch of the week, is one of my all time favourite albums and one that blew my mind with its insane sound design, textures and contrasts - all that while still being catchy! I’m talking about the debut album 'Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides' by PC Music producer Sophie. Sadly, the sound artist and musician passed away in January 2021. 

With 'Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides' she really mastered to combine harsh, distorted dark synth sounds with super sweet, catchy pop vocals. In my opinion there’s a huge visual component to her music, since many of those sounds replicate movements or aim to portrait the idea of exaggerated instruments like mountain sized pianos. 

To know that she synthesised all those sounds by herself without relying on samples continues to inspire me. Furthermore I always loved the idea of making experimental things which remain approachable at the same time and thereby get new people interested in innovation and new stuff. 

In my opinion the album covers a huge soundscape from shiny, bubbly, pop sounds to dark, heavy distorted synths and huge drums. You can get a really nice impression of the album by listening to the tracks 'Faceshopping' and 'Immaterial'. So make sure to check them out and until next time!"
