Drum & Lace
We are delighted about this wonderful new addition to our family of artists. The Italian electronic artist Drum & Lace will release her second album and follow-up to her stunning debut in June 2024 on Fabrique. Her music has been described as being genre-fluid and having a „chameleon-like nature“ (A Closer Listen), melding together sampled field recordings, lush layers of synths, chamber instruments and electronic beats. She draws inspiration from film music, music concrete and nature to create textural electronica, often blending unlikely sounds with one another. The breathtakingly beautiful album opening track "Solstice" was released on January 26th. More to come soon.
