Eartheater (aka Queens based artist Alexandra Drewchin) distills foley-filled digital production, a three-octave vocal range, and classical composition into works suspended between obsessively detailed sonic tapestries and almost recklessly romantic and gestural electronica. A body of viscerally emotive live performance stands alongside her recorded output, realized by her fearless physical investment and gut-wrenching vocal sincerity.
“Eartheater pokes critically and poetically at societal systems, social expectations, and sonic conventions.” – The FADER
“All artistic gestures feel connected in her world: music, dance, poetry, film, stripped of conceptual baggage and made accessible, full of feeling and expression built on a pounding intellect.” – The Wire
“The risks taken here make it Eartheater’s most striking full-length. In the album’s endless subversions and contradictions, Drewchin occasionally hits on something profound, like sepulchral atmospheres, or the way her vocals run circles around the harp strums. Her music can feel frustratingly fragmented one second and suddenly coalesce into something brilliant the next.” — Resident Advisor
