Perila How Much Time it is Between You and Me?
The suitably sensual, weird and erotic debut album from experimental producer, sound designer and composer Aleksandra Zakharenko’s Perila alias. The Russian-born, Berlin-based artist first emerged on Berlin Community Radio and then went on to create her own brilliantly singular podcast series, Weird Erotic Tension. WET has since helped to grow a community of expressionistic music that combines field recordings, erotic poetry and atmospheric electronic productions. Perila’s debut album commits the same aesthetic to record, taking us on a mind-expanding, introspective but highly atmospheric and sensual journey across unfamiliar and almost mystic landscapes. Amorphous structures, eerie reverb, distorted vocals, distant, jangling melodies, breathy recitations, subtle drone textures and otherworldly FX drift through the centre of the record as the Russian’s innate experimentalism spins us further out towards the edges of reality. There is a feeling of the tussle between a sense of detachment and introspection, like losing yourself from the world in an intense connection with a lover. That intimacy and sensuality is palpable throughout. How Much Time it is Between You and Me? Is the perfect way to separate your senses from your environment so they focus on the love and life around you. Tom Jones
