Vanessa Worm Shares Debut Album 'VANESSA 77'

Chris Cudby / Friday 10th July, 2020 12:29PM

Garnering a global fanbase following a killer run of releases via Glasgow's Optimo Music and local live appearances at Friendly Potential's Beacon and Catacombs festivals, Melbourne by way of Dunedin dance innovator Vanessa Worm today drops her debut album VANESSA 77. Spanning a thrillingly diverse range of underground sonics and styles plus inventing a few new ones of her own along the way, Worm's collection conjures mental visions of parallel dimension no wave club ragers – where NZ electronics-loving noiseniks such as Ducklingmonster and Futurians bring the party alongside ESG and A Number Of Names. Optimo Music raved about the songwriter / producer as "exactly the kind of artist Optimo Music dreams of finding; her music fits in with no genre and no scene – it is its own genre and its own scene."

Vanessa Worm opened up about the origins of the record: “Vanessa 77, like most creative endeavours is a journey of self discovery. Mentally, emotionally and creatively. I spent most of my time alone in winter 2019 – focused solely on personal development and self realisation via the creation of this album. It was a way for me to put my mental state onto a plate – the joys, the fears, the epiphanies, and so on. I so desperately wanted to share what I was learning with the world too – I intended for Vanessa 77 to help others to heal, self-realise and alchemise. It was a 9-month process of death and a re-birth from the old into the new. Much like the world is experiencing now entering 2020, I hope this album can provide some form of healing, soothing, celebration and act as a sub-conscious guide for us as we enter into this New Earth. Thank you to all who listens, enjoy!

'VANESSA 77' is out now via Optimo Music.
