Veronica Maximova has shared a new track from her upcoming debut album, Computerlove.
Maximova is a performing artist, producer, and composer, who, after leaving Moscow at a young age, arrived in Ghent, Belgium, and then Berlin, Germany in 2014, where she decided to focus her energy on writing and releasing music. Four years later, she self-released her first EP, Mirror Me, on digital formats, followed by the synthwave EP New World Being, made in collaboration with her band project, Sönder. Contrast is a primary theme to Veronica’s music—she aims to strike a balance between light and dark, optimism and pessimism, human and machine, revolution and peace. Often dreamy vocals and obscure spoken word sit on a backdrop of synthetic and acoustic sounds, "painting vivid memoirs" of her childhood in Moscow," the label explains.
We're told that debut album Computerlove "sets the scene for a broader vision" for the Voitax label, while also establishing Maximova as a "fresh and important artistic voice" on the Berlin label's roster. Ahead of its release, you can stream Cantsleep below, featuring soothing lyrics, coupled with a touching, dream-like piano melody, all blended against wailing brass and spiralling streams of thought.
