The debut release from electronica-chill artist Nurosonic is shrouded in mystery. Titled “Her featuring Avanna)”, the alluring track is a reference to the Spike Jonze-directed cult film of the same name (starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson).
The film has been described this way: “A masterpiece of love, wit and the human condition, Her engages the mind as it warms the heart”. The same could be said of the Nurosonic track.
Nurosonic has chosen to keep their identity under wraps, with only a few details emerging. Nurosonic is many things that are reflected in the music made under that name – a classically trained musician, and devotee of AI culture, an aficionado of electronic music production and the holder of a PhD in Music Neuroscience.
A mad professor operating alone? A cross-disciplinary collective? The alter-ego of a notorious pop icon? None of the above? Does it really matter? Her is the debut release under the Nurosonic banner – it’s a hypnotic journey into obsession and devotion built around a haunting vocal performance by Avanna.
And who is Avanna? “Avanna is anyone you want her to be”, offers Nurosonic. The music of Nurosonic speaks for itself. The release of Her is the first in a series of intriguing releases planned to emerge from the lockdown months of 2020. “At once technological and transcendental, Her is a work of science and fiction and an emotional examination into the nature of love in the modern world.”
