RECORD OF THE WEEK: Fatima Al Qadiri - Battery [Hyperdub Records]

Fatima Al Qadiri brings us ‘Battery’ an eerie cut off her latest album ‘Brute’ which is due to be released in March.

Released on Hyperdub Records ‘Battery’ is another sparsely arranged track, laced with incredible texture. In traditional Al Qadiri style the track uses a series of really interesting sounds including choir sounds, glassy synths and something that sounds like an 8bit lions raw…
Battery has an extremely unique sense of space which is only reinforced by the use of dissonant melody, this is something the Kuwaiti always seems to get so right. If ‘Battery’ is anything to go by we're in for a treat with ‘Brute’ - also amazing cover art.
‘Brute’ will be released on the 4th of March.


Pre-order 'Brute': Vinyl / Digital
