With Öona Dahl’s debut artist album slated for release this May, Hallucienda offers a glimpse in the form of the ‘Wait. lifted’ EP.
Taken from her forthcoming album, the EP’s title track is a stunning piece of song-based electronica showcasing soaring, dreamlike vocals over a strong, swaying rhythm and oscillating chords. Moving on with a musical statement of intent, the EP continues to reveal Öona’s evergrowing range as a producer with four more exclusive, non-album tracks. The raw, cosmic warehouse vibes of ‘Empath’, the pulsing electronica of ‘I Left My Heart’, the cinematic ambience of ‘For est Luminescence’, and the sublime melodic tech of ‘Hole In The Sky’ are each multi-genre offerings sonically defined by her own unique thumbprint.
The past two years have seen American artist Öona Dahl catch the attention of an eclectic group of music lovers. Her DJ sets veer effortlessly from electronica to ambient and back again with a penchant for standout takes on melodic techno and house along the way. As a producer she’s dabbled in all these styles on labels like Hallucienda, Igloo-Rec and All Day I Dream while enlisting remixers such as Soma’s Petrichor. In late 2016, her club and ambient remixes for alternative electronica artist Dugong on the Occultists label strongly hinted at an even more cosmic, left-leaning direction, as rumors of her debut artist album Holograma for Hallucienda began to surface.
Release Date: March 31st, 2017
