Premiere: WWWater – My Hands
Borrowing it’s title from Les Gorges De La Falaise, a waterfall in her mothers home country of Martinique, the debut EP from WWWater aka Soulwax collaborator Charlotte Adigéry, is a truly special, otherworldly listen.
Drawing from a blossoming sphere of influences, from Youtube samples to meditative drones, whilst all underpinned by her classic-tinged songwriting, La Falaise is a bold statement of intent.
At times purposefully uncompromising, it demands and deserves attention, most particularly EP highlight My Hands, lifting it’s ethereal sample from an ASMR Session. Documenting the emotional turmoil of hurting another, it stings with the sort of intimacy that’s only born out of personal experience.
In truth, comparisons are difficult to forge; there are moments of the almost harsh, industrial dignity of Portishead, the spacious purity of James Blake and the luxuriously twisted pop of FKA Twigs. Check it out below.
