It is said that no (wo) man is an island, entire of itself, but if Liz Green’s highly acclaimed debut album O, Devotion! says anything it’s that she exists in a certain kind of isolation, as a uniquely exceptional, ?eccentric and rather magical? artist, (to borrow words from The Guardian). One does not just stumble across her music to be left unmarked. She gives too much for that. Her first musical missives in 2007, set afloat like so many bottled messages, saw her win Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition before finding land in 2011′s full length, and now its emboldened follow up Haul Away!, due out via Play It Again Sam on 14 April 2014, is set to reach the most distant of shores.
Everything she says, when not to kooky, is eloquent.
The Do It Again mini album represents the perfect coming together of three of the most original musical minds in the world.
“Monument?s grandeur and grace is as distinctive as it is moving and was the first song where they wrote lyrics together. A defining moment on the mini album in the shape of a near ten-minute long anthem, which was inspired by a sculpture from artist Juliana Cerqueira Leite, which gave Robyn a ?physical experience of what it’s like to define yourself or stand for something or figure out who you are.?
?Do It Again? is the first single taken from the mini album and is an ?accidental pop song? written after a night out together in Bergen. It is one of the most effervescent, effortlessly uplifting electro-pop tunes of recent years, and started life as a rave-inspired throwback.
