Who is it?

Ambient and London-based musician Carolina McPhail, who operates under the name ALLISON’S GATE. She’s just released her debut LP Sink Or Swim, a collection of compositions from the period between 2011 and 2016, a record that focuses on ‘girlhood and the weight of romantic endeavours.’ And now she’s put out a video for the track Street V.

Why should you listen to it?

Street V mixes audio and visual collage to create its own hypnotic dreamworld, in the video directed by McPhail. It’s more soundscape than song, a shivering, kaleidoscopic trip, an audio carousel that spins the listener around while McPhail’s vocal echoes deep in the mix. Ambient music isn’t for everyone, but when it shines like this it’s hard to say no.

What’s next?

ALLISON’S GATE‘s album Sink Or Swim is out now on Memorials Of Distinction.
