Announcing even my dreams don’t go outside: An AQNB art & music compendium from our community, out Apr 22

13 April 2020

AQNB is releasing even my dreams don’t go outside, a download-only album of new music and visual works on April 22.

Compiled and curated by our team, the compendium features contributions from artists featured on the platform in the recent past, alongside those helping to define our scene into the future. It’s inspired by the endless scroll of introspection that has come to define this time in global crisis, while aiming to build positive momentum and financial support for the artists involved during lockdown.

Music contributions come from Dasychira, Elvin Brandhi, Fauness, Keru Not Ever, Rui Ho, ssaliva and others, as well as visual pieces by Tea Stražičić, Alexander Iezzi, Emma Pryde and more. See the lovely cover art by Jennifer Mehigan below.

More to come, watch this space.**

Ytem & Escha evoke a non sequitur fantasia on their remix of Fauness’ fairy rock ballad ‘White River’

5 March 2020

Fauness is releasing EP White River Remixes on March 6, with preview track ‘Escha & Ytem Creuseur Liberation Remix’ premiering on AQNB today. The London-based producer dropped another EP Lashes In A Landfill in November last year, where the titular fairy rock first appeared.

This remix embraces the non sequitur without hesitation. The track catapults into dramatic string riffs and wailing vocal chops. Radio voiceover callouts of each artists’ alias sound off amidst cliché orchestral arrangements, effectively evoking  Chino Amobi’s 2017 album Paradiso,  except it feels like it’s being used to score the Disney movie Frozen. A celebration of camaraderie is central to the frenzied sonic chaos of the artists’ remix.**

Fauness’ White River Remixes EP is self-released on March 6, 2020.
