Goddess911 is a new project from Alister Wright (aka Cloud Control & Vlossom) and Samuel Lockwood (aka The Jezabels) and they’ve just dropped a debut ep titled “I.F.I.U” (i.e. I Fucked It Up) which is a very alluring five-track collection of their psychedelic/indie-pop sound and style.
Coming from these guys you just know it’s going to be good but I was still quite impressed by how good this ep is. It’s one of those perfect “any time of day” albums and I reckon it’s going to get a bit of a flogging over here.
It also comes with a remix ep featuring reworks from Skeleton, DJ Counselling, Coby Sey and Yu Su – you can check out right here
“What came out when we started writing was a surprisingly strange pastiche of slightly psychedelic pop and acoustic soundscapes. We were both concerned with the state of the world – our musical collaboration felt like a way of seeking an answer to a seemingly impossible set of problems facing humanity at the time. Heather Shannon (The Jezabels) was included to help with melodies and lyrics, and the three of us chipped away slowly and surely at a set of songs that you find on the EP today.
We feel the best way to describe the process is the surrealist exquisite corpse – an assemblage of ideas that have been brought together collectively.”
– Samuel Lockwood
