Aïsha Devi joins Fabric’s Houndstooth label with her ‘Conscious Cunt’ EP out on July 24. The 3 track EP explores different perspectives on womanhood and the dichotomy between materialistic femininity under societal pressure and spirituality. In her own words:
It’s an EP about sluts, awareness, death, and women in a patriarchal society… enlightenment, violence, resistance, mothers, daughters, consciousness, Guy Debord, Vedas and eternity. It’s also a high-five to my grandmother who raised me and passed away early this year.
Lead track ‘Kim & The Wheel of Life’ is a whirling melodic vortex of echoing synths underlaid by deep rumbling kicks and melancholic undertones before morphing into a vocal-centric piece. Aisha says: It’s a cynical comment – societal emptiness vs dharma & eternity… or the complete fail of modern feminine icons, empowered but still complying to patriarchal and capitalist codes.
Devi’s debut album described as a ‘materialisation of her initiatic journey through her spiritual and origin quests’ is due later this year and is sure to make waves. Preview and pre-order the EP via Houndstooth.
