“You’re trouble” is an avant-garde electronic pop album about
questioning and locating a sense of self in a disorienting,
breaking environment of dissolving certainity which grows
increasingly chaotic, about dysmorphic dissatisfaction, becoming
disillusioned and alienated.
It seeks to juxtapose beauty, serenity and vigour with instability,
ugliness, chaos and crisis, expressing itself fluidly without genre
or otherwise boundaries.
A kind of sinister, anxious but still forward-pushing and at times
positive and hot-blooded empowering energy can be felt that
wants to urge the listener not to give up but to try and take
courage and take control of the troubles and fears in their life.
The tone is sometimes reflective, sometimes confronting. The
album navigates fairly abstract musical territory, cathartic
abrasiveness, heavy and unrelenting sounds of post-club music
and noise fused with stretches of pop music, never settling down
or resting for long, constantly breaking up and re-assembling
Between chaos and form, it’s finding relief in imperfection and the
in-between. As such the music is ambivalent and is equal parts
some kind of crisis club music as well as introspective reflection.
