Planningtorock has spent the last three and a half years in near solitude, writing and recording her new album in Berlin. From the sound of the first single, it seems like this was time well spent. Very much in the vein of previous collaborators The Knife, Planningtorock’s haunting and otherworldly electronic sound is equal parts fascinating and beautiful. W is out May 17 on DFA Records.
Planningtorock also conceptualized, directed, and edited this stunning, but utterly twisted video for the track as well. And yes, that is a prosthetic nose. Get creeped out.
