Bristol’s Shanti Celeste has announced the release of her debut album Tangerine, this coming November.
Following up records for labels like Apron, Secretsundaze and her own Peach Discs imprint amongst others, Tangerine is said to strike connections between the legacy of the music of Detroit alongside tempos that embody UK Soundsystem traditions, with Shanti using her voice, a kalimba, and synthesizers as bedrocks across the ten-track LP.
Speaking on the album, Shanti says “when I made music for EPs, sometimes I felt restricted,” she says. “I would think too much about creating the moments on the dancefloor I love – seeing visions of ecstatic people hugging, I didn’t give myself free reign to express all of myself. Writing an album made me feel free of all this because it seemed like an open-ended project. I could just keep creating until I felt like stopping”.
Released November 15th, listen to album cut ‘Voz (Instrumental)’ below.
