The so-called "first lady" of LA-based record label and collective Friends of Friends has given us a delightful treat. The Berlin-based (but London born) singer's debut single "Bizarre" is a lush and dreamy bit of woozy folk. The 2 1/2 minute track crawls along uneasily, Perera Elsewhere's vocals and hazy acoustic guitar giving the impression they'll fall off the tracks at any minute. It's a strong debut, so we'll be keeping an ear out for this one.
Perera Elsewhere's Bizarre EP will be out September 8/9 via Friends of Friends and includes remixes by Hype Williams, Maria Minerva, and more. Following that, her debut LP, Everlast is scheduled for release on October 28.
