Lucy Railton's solo debut 'Paradise 94' is out now

Mon May 28th

Cellist and electronic composer Lucy Railton recently released her solo debut 'Paradise 94', marking a new chapter in her long-term engagement with contemporary music. Released on Boomkat’s Modern Love imprint, her layered debut stands out in distinctly modern-sounding and expressive, experimental compositions; sourcing field recordings and found sounds along with cello explorations, church organ and 80s synthesizers. 

"Railton's whip-smart sound design and classical chops lend an initial shock and awe effect to Paradise 94, a remarkably polished debut. Once that wears off, though, some of the album's key elements seem like old ideas in shiny packaging. Still, the LP has a lot going for it. Paradise 94 shows some of the far-flung sonic zones Railton traverses as a player, curator and fan. It's a warning shot from an artist we're likely to hear much more of." - Resident Advisor
