Perila: How Much Time Is It Between You And Me? LP
Perila, the moniker of Berlin-based electronic musician Aleksandra Zakharenko, delivers her debut album, How Much Time it is Between You and Me?, via Smalltown Supersound. With a sound world so specific and transportive, Zakharenko's ambient music is filled with detail and movement akin to hauntological musique concrète touched by song. Zakharenko self-describes the record as an "immersive experience into self" viewed through a "silence prism" where everyday sounds usually ignored felt amplified. Lead single "Fallin Into Space" is a track about "grounding yourself in new places, accepting the surroundings, and opening up to what comes," explains Zakharenko. "It's about slowing down and being conscious about what and how your body is in that space. Many new things come to attention when you slow down and observe."
