C.A.R releases new EP on Ransom Note Records
London residing, Franco-Canadian Chloé Raunet has unveiled new music for our in house record label which is available now. The latest EP picks up where she left off – following on from her much loved album "Pinned" which was released in 2018.
The EP is described as "playful, machine-driven and dark". C.A.R.’s music travels between glacial electronica, post-punk and warming, introspective pop, all emanating from a self-confessed crush on too many genres. Taking on the mantle of producer, singer, and songwriter once again, Pressure Drop sees her delve deeper into the shimmering, layered world of synth-laden, shoegaze electronics she’s been hinting at on previous outings.
This the first new material to emerge from Raunet under her C.A.R. moniker since last year’s triumphant and critically acclaimed PINNED album – her first outing on Ransom Note Records. Growing with confidence and maturity with every release, her output continues to expand in both ambition and depth, exploring the outer reaches of left of centre pop.
Speaking about the EP Raunet remarks "When everything feels like it’s falling with the leaves, you’re still dancing in the wind."
Titled "Pressure Drop" the EP features two originals and one remix from Suzanne Kraft. The American producer reworks the bare bones of the lead track and reimagines the stems in a rugged, slow moving dancefloor focussed groove which is perfect for the early hours and those that should have gone home.
C.A.R's vocals and lyrics have become highly sought after with recent guest appearances on the likes of music from Maceo Plex, Red Axes and Gesaffelstein.
