Gel Set Announces New LP 'Tone Invasion', Airs "Next Exit"

L.A-based electronic/electro-pop/minimal synth project Gel Set (aka multimedia artist Laura Callier), has announced the release of her new studio album 'Tone Invasion'.

The follow-up to 2017’s captivating Body Copy, will be out on April 30. Pre-order your copy here.

Something about the crime of a home invasion feels especially sinister. The home, a person’s sacred temple from the cruel world, penetrated by an unwelcome force. A masked man holding braided rope and knife, clad in a striped shirt like a cartoon burglar. A door-to-door salesman with a pleasant grin but dark desires. At best, you end up tied to a chair with your flatscreen in the back of a van, and at worst…well, plenty of true crime mythos cover worst case scenarios.

So what of a tone invasion? A song can shatter our peace and ruin a trip to the drugstore with memories of a relationship that soured. Another can soothe our pain by reminding us that we’re not alone. Sounds too, it seems, have the power of an invader, with consequences both catastrophic and cathartic. This is what Laura Callier (AKA Gel Set) had in mind while recording her latest album. On Tone Invasion she harnesses that power, shining a flashlight inward and exposing the many traps the mind lays for us. 

In keeping with the record’s theme, Callier invited an invader of her own into her recording process, asking Noah Anthony (AKA Profligate) to mix the album. It was the first time she’d brought in an outside collaborator for her solo work, and Callier was understandably hesitant. “I feared that if a male touched my songs, he'd end up getting all the credit, as sometimes happens in this world,” she explains. “Noah had my explicit instructions to only mix the album and not touch anything else, but to my chagrin I absolutely loved the other suggestions he had.” In the end, an outside perspective proved refreshing, and Anthony ended up co-producing and contributing original instrumentation to several songs.

No matter the song’s subject, it’s Callier’s deft command of these sonic interlopers that makes Tone Invasion so infectious. Her crystal-clear vocals add a sense of winking levity to the whole thing; assuring us that there’s still some fun to be had in darkness.

Check out the album's tracklist and watch the video for her new single "Next Exit", below.

Tone Invasion Tracklist:
01. Feed Me
02. Love Problems
04. Medusa's Kiss
05. Where the Ocean Meets the Land
06. Virtual Love
07. Next Exit
08. In the Wall
09. Shapes in a Cloud
10.Where's My Freak

Watch: Art d'Ecco Reveals New Single/Video "I Am The Dance Floor"

The song is taken from  his forthcoming new album 'In Standard Definition', which will be out in April 23rd through Paper Bag Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Beneath a shimmering disco ball and atop a giant patchwork light up floor, “I Am The Dance Floor" beckons us all to be free and join d'Ecco where he is evidently most at home, on stage in the middle of the lights, camera and action.

“I was picturing this alt version of Saturday Night Fever where the lead is this aging loner obsessed with dance, who every weekend shows up at different clubs around town and just murders the dance floor, and then disappears out the back door," says d'Ecco. “There is a person from my home town who sort of fits this description quite well. I think every scene has their own version of Random Dancing Dude.”
