Australian Jorja Chalmers spent the bulk of last year on the road.
A key part of Bryan Ferry's live set up, the multi-instrumentalist (saxophones, keyboards) used her down-time in hotels around the globe to pen material of her own. The legendary lounge lizard invited her to use his very own London studio, with Jorja Chalmers channelling a highly ethereal sense of glamour.
Tapes found their way to the Hollywood Hills, where Johnny Jewel and Dean Hurley got to grips with what lay inside. New album 'Human Again' is the result, out now through Italians Do It Better.
She has all the ingredients to succeed on her own, though: a bold look, and a signature style that's in turns creepy, claustrophobic, cinematic, atmospheric and seductive. More importantly, "Human Again" is superb, offering a synthesizer-powered mix of dark ambient instrumentals, David Lynch style soundtrack pieces, drowsy and clandestine sounding songs and cuts that wrap her distinctive saxophone solos around the most evocative of electronic soundscapes.
