GEL SET SHARES NEW TRACK “BOUNCE” ‘Body Copy’ Coming October 20th on 2MR
Gel Set is the solo project from multimedia artist, Laura Callier.
‘Body Copy’ is an album of psychedelic electro. Laura’s softly spoken, trance like vocals are accompanied by experimental bedroom productionwhich includes a number of film samples and sound effects.
Having been compared to Chris and Cosey – she is influenced by Karen Dalton‘s raw emotion, the abstract storytelling and dissonance of late Scott Walker, the synthesis of Mort Garson and Tangerine Dream and the heavy sounds of Hogg.
The record was born after a move from Chicago to LA to pursue sound design and post production. Callier came to find loneliness in this overpopulated city, searching for familiar faces at shows, stores, sidewalks. Strangers looked like variants of loved ones which helped Gel Set come to the realization that the world is full of body copies.
