Lafawndah's journey to her current incarnation as a devotional pop polymath has wound as unpredictably as her compositional style. Her traversing of musical and artistic milieus has been defined by a freedom of tone, surrealist sense of space, and assured manipulation of formal and psychological tension.
After two acclamaimed EPs (2014's self-titled 'Lafawndah' and 2016 Warp release 'Tan'), Lafawndah has now announced 'ANCESTOR BOY', her debut album, with single 'Daddy'. Meanwhile, she has continued to generate a cinematic body of work touching from a fascination with the counterpoints between music, body and space (just as with her ever-evolving live performances). Most recently, this colaboration has resulted in Le Renard Bleu, an album and a companion film made with legendary composed Midori Takada (alongside long-time film collaborators Partel Oliva), as well as self-directing her own astounding music video for joseph (a song co-written with Jamie Woon).
Further, Lafawndah's HONEY COLONY mixtape series has put the full extent of dense, baroque, experimental, maximalist and avant-garde production and arrangement style on display, drawing thrilling new potentials from fellow travellers Klein, Bonnie Banane, Kelsey Lu and Kelela.
Throughout Lafawndah's music, one can trace the influence of artists such as Meredith Monk, Carlos Sara and Andy Kaufman as much as musical antecedents AR Rahmann, Missy Elliott or Geinoh Yamashirogumi, all while feeling and sounding only like herself.
