Combo Chimbita
Erica Eso
Erica Eso is a microtonal pop project founded by composer and synthesizer player, Weston Minissali of Cloud Becomes Your Hand. "Perhaps one of the most quotable hooks of 2015 comes from an unexpected source. Erica Eso, a new 'globalized pop' sensation emanating from avant synthesist Weston Minissali, delivers an excitable melody in an unknown falsetto: it croons a rousing chorus for modern hearts" (Tiny Mix Tapes) The brooklyn-based quartet is comprised of Rhonda Lowry on drums, Nathaniel Morgan on bass and Ellen O'Meara on synthesizer.
Primarily composed in an attic, 2019 (a date in time, a lucky anagram, or maybe just an arbitrary value deemed significant) is the debut album of Erica Eso (a name plus music, an empty bracket, not an alter ego). The album exhibits abstract sound palettes willfully submitting to the universal pop song structure. Synthesizers born of distorted sine waves and quarter tone temperament join with an unknown loner's fragile falsetto singing proudly of loss and rebirth. Songs like "One Hundred Years," "Neer Me Ruuner," and "Crippled Symmetry," celebrate the clean, gridded pulse of the dance floor, but the instinctive spirit of the record lies in the murky, arrhythmic swells and clicks of tracks like "Iris Kyle" and "Am Eve Erica." But whose femininity is hollering out amongst this reverb?
