SOFT EXPRESSION IS AVAILABLE NOW ON 12″ VINYL
& DIGITALLY ON FRIDAY 27 MARCH
Soothsayer are excited to reveal the latest addition to their dynamic roster, Sydney musician, DJ and Retiree band member BODY CORP (aka Marco Vella). With previous releases on Pelvis Records, Plastic World and with band Retiree, Soothsayer today release BODY CORP’s club-ready EP Soft Expression exclusively on 12” vinyl, available for purchase on soothsayeronline.com, Bandcamp and select record stores. The EP will be released digitally on Friday 27 March.
To tide listeners over until they can get their hands on a wax copy, BODY CORP shares his first single from the release ‘You Don’t Know’, a delicious slice of no-fi house that incorporates mellow, celestial sounds that elevate the track to another sonic plane and was inspired by the foreign and unfamiliar soundscapes of Japan, during a trip Marco took some time ago:
“The track began with field recordings of a Japanese train guard’s announcements on the JR Line from Tokyo to Kyoto. Re-incarnated through experimentations in various Sydney studios and drawing influence from 90s acid house, ‘You Don’t Know’ was the beginning of what has become the Soft Expression EP. – BODY CORP
The rest of Soft Expression was formed from evolving sessions, drawing inspiration from the dedicated local music scenes in Sydney and Melbourne and often finding a moment after to record sections of songs, resulting in a beautiful collection of house tracks that lean heavily on the sounds of the 90s and Marco’s love of the late night, while parading a distinct modern touch. Across four silk-laced originals (and one mind bending remix from Francis Inferno Orchestra – exclusive to the 12”), there are smudgy fingerprints of musical introspection.‘You Don’t Know’ showcases BODY CORP’s distinct style of vintage house with a sharp focus on tonight’s dancefloor.
