May Roosevelt: Greek Composer, Producer, and Thereminist

Now that Blade Runner has entered my mind again, I’ve been in that dark, synthy mood lately and have been seeking out music that takes me to a future LA in which I feel despondent and dreamy in the snow. Greek producer May Roosevelt takes me there. The way she builds her songs and gives them room to grow is excellent, and I found myself getting lost and repeating “Air” several times, never wanting it to end. Influenced by Massive Attack, Bach, Bjork, traditional Greek, and Byzantine chants, her electronica is haunting in the best way.

Her latest release Junea came out this week via Inner Ear and is available via Bandcamp.
