SUI ZHEN ON DIGITAL HOARDING

martynpepperell:

"…People just endlessly collect media and data. They could be a hoarder and you wouldn’t know because their hoarding is just digital. You might think, look at these people, they have such simple lives, but actually no. Their desktop is a mess, they have hard drives coming out of everywhere, and they haven’t cleaned up their iPhone for ages." - Sui Zhen

The first photo from my collaboration with Melbourne photographer Phebe Schmidt was released together with an interview on i-D Magazine. We chatted about my recent trip to Japan, some new influences and upcoming projects. More photos will be released in the coming months culminating in a photo book Phebe and I are publishing together. For now, I hope you enjoy the interview.

Japanese boutique label Teto Records will release my new EP ‘Female Basic’ this May 1st. I’ll be playing a couple of shows in Tokyo to launch limited edition cassettes in early May and for those elsewhere, there’ll be digital download available soon. Artwork designed by my compadre of Japanese language and design, Eloise Rapp. Female Basic intercepts my ‘Secretly Susan’ LP which will come out later 2014 (fingers crossed).

Much of the inspiration for the EP came from a necessity to express myself after a lengthy 6-9 months working on a more structured and polished alt-pop record. I wanted to capture something urgent and ephemeral, inspired around the theme of  Uncanny Valley and Japanese bands including Grape Iris, Dip in the Pool and Mariah, the Female Basic EP quickly emerged. Recorded in my Melbourne home studio (shared with Andras Fox) over a few weeks in March/April 2014 I am enjoying the immediacy of its release. 

Here’s the first track, and the rest to come soon.
