Interview With Ana Lola Roman
A GENRE-SPLICING, LONGITUDE-ESCHEWING, MULTI-DISCIPLINED VISIONARY
Ana Lola Roman is a multi-instrumentalist, sound-designer, choreographer, singer, songwriter and general enigma. She is lucky enough to spread her time between two revered musical epicentres – Brooklyn and Berlin. Categorising her music is problematic due to its diversity, but one constant is that her compositions all command a physical effort on the part of the listener. She has been called a visionary for combining tribal rhythms, Sheffield synth-pop, glitchy electronica, neo-classical piano and ethereal choruses to produce mesmerising and fantastical music. There’s also something of an industrial feel to her output, which is cleverly offset by her beguiling vocals.
Her striking visual presentations and inventive recording processes have made Roman a subject for directors, photographers and conceptual video artists so we thought it only right that we should feature her here. Why not download Klutch (here) and check out this video (which is a couple of years old, but still trippy as fuck) and you’ll either agree or disagree, though hopefully the former.
