White Hinterland Changes Direction On Kairos

Casey Dienel is back at it again under the name of White Hinterland. She's ready to release her third full-length album, titled Kairos, on March 9th via the Dead Oceans label.

 

The album brings another transition in her sound, evolving to a newly defined one of minimal electronic pop, saturated with her sweet voice, which covers the deep bass and baroque grooves that mark the style of the new album.

 

This is a big change from the more psychedelic, guitar-driven organic approach of her previous album Luniculaire (not to mention the move from French lyrics back to her native English). It seems driven by a number of changes this time around: She moved from the east cost to Portland, Oregon; replaced the piano with electronics like programmed drum sounds and live looping, as well as working in a group context rather than a single songwriter, and BAM! New sound.

 

The first track Icarus is a prime example of this, it's a smoothly polished pop song with steady, driving bass jabs and a surreal/otherworldly sound.
