Heavenly Creatures is AQNB’s fourth release of new music and visual works compiled and curated by our London and Los Angeles-based team.
Heavenly Creatures takes its title from the 1994 dark biographical drama and queer cult classic film of the same name, with a nod to Los Angeles party Heav3n and its championing of a post-PC Music sound—born online and spread across communication networks the world over. Featuring music by young producers from across the internet, the compilation’s heavily-filtered, DIY DAW tracks present an online-but-intimate hyper-emotionality by artists addressing life, love and loneliness from the perspective of a pop-appreciating electronic underground. Together with visual art works that express digital modes of intimacy, it’s a space of vulnerability and introspection built on a melancholic sub-frequency that’s carried forward by the hopeless romantics and baby angels that inhabit it.
