Mutant
Release Date: Fall 2015 After the pleasantly gorgeous Xen last year, Arca has kept himself busy with his involvement in Björk’s heartbreak masterpiece Vulnicura. The wonky producer recently shared news of a new album in the works, expected to be out this fall.

Climbing Through The Popstar Simulacra to Find New Peaks of the Uncanny Valley   ‘Oh I like this new song… I wonder who sings this?’ A thought we have all possessed while discovering a new artist.

Her stunning and unique visuals, erotic and compelling vocals and mesmerizing stage presence all have me yearning for more from the young artist.
