Surfacing: Ana Lola Roman

Words: Saam Das

Ana Lola Roman is an enigma. Moreover, she's a visionary who combines tribal rhythms, eighties dance beats, glitchy electronica, neo-classical piano and ethereal choruses to produce spellbinding music. For a limited time only, we're giving away an exclusive download of 'Klutch', from her forthcoming double A-side single, out on April 18th.

Originally from Germany but now based in Brooklyn, Ana has been a unique performing artist, also dabbling in sound design and choreography. She recorded this single with Trent Reznor collaborator Jean Luc Sinclair and there are certain similarities between her work and Reznor's. There's something of an industrial feel to her music, offset by her beguiling vocals. Yet it is also uniquely experimental and Ana's single offers a mesmeric glimpse into her fantastical world.

Listen to 'Jigsaw' (the other A-side) on Soundcloud and listen/download 'Klutch' in the widget below. The latter is my favourite side on the single, and will hopefully win you over in the same manner it won me over.
