An artist we first crossed paths with at Red Bull Music Academy's 2011 session (and subsequently highlighted as one of the "Fresh Faces" from that year's class), vocalist/producer Andrea Balency will issue her official debut release later this month, a five-track affair whose first single was co-produced by James Blake collaborator Airhead. The Walls EP will introduce the 22-year-old part-Mexican, part-French Balency across a number of emotive productions which ride the line between alt R&B and pop-lined electronics.
Set to see its official release on Monday, June 23 via the Bataille label, a lyric video for Walls' lead single, "You've Never Been Alone," can be watched/heard below, where the artwork and tracklist for Balency's debut release have also been included; another EP track, "Adieu Créature," can also currently be streamed over on Stereogum. Furthermore, Airhead himself announced plans to release a new solo EP via the 1-800-Dinosaur label next month, the details of which can be found here.
