FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
On Friday, January 19, 2024, Austin, TX band, SINE, led by Rona Rougeheart, will release their next new album entitled, “Luxuria”, produced by Danish industrial artist and producer, Claus Larsen / Leæther Strip (pictured left).
The album’s title gives clues to the overindulgent, sinister theme of the lyrics and subject matter. This masterfully crafted musical cocktail of booming sub bass, thumping industrial beats and dreamy, hypnotic waves of echoing atmospheres will leave you wanting more.
Claus talks about working on the album:
“Working on these great songs was hyper-inspiring for me. Such a pleasure to be let into her dark universe and slow captivating grooves. Rona (Rougeheart) has a huge talent, and working with a fellow artist with such a passion is an honor for me.”
Rona Rougeheart, lead of SINE, also speaks about the process of making the album with Claus:
“When I sent Claus my demos for the album, I didn’t have any particular direction for him. I didn’t want to have any influence. I wanted him to be inspired in the moment.
When he sent me the final production of the songs, it was everything I hoped would come out of our collaboration and more!”
Along with Larsen, hip hop producer, AwareNess, from Denver, CO, also produced a song entitled, “Dark Matters”. It was the last song to be added to the album and was an effortless collaboration between AwareNess and SINE.
Rona explains how the collaboration happened:
“I had been chatting with the artists, Time and AwareNess (who have a project called calm.), about a possible collaboration for a while, but it wasn’t until one day, AwareNess randomly sent me a sample of some music he created and asked me what I thought. I liked it, but I told him, “You can go darker…like, way darker”. He quickly returned with a sample of the darkest, sexiest soundtrack that was so incredible! It’s one of my favorites! I can’t wait to do more with him!”
AwareNess talks of working with SINE:
“It was great working with such a talented artist, this song was not within my typical genre and I plan on doing more.”
The album saw additional production, mixing and mastering by another Denver based artist and producer, Chase Dobson. Dobson’s resume includes production work for Curse Mackey’s two solo albums, Dobson’s numerous solo endeavors, as well as live production with artists such as, Kanye West, Rihanna, M83, Tycho, Rüfüs Du Sol and Röyksopp.
SINE’s Luxuria comes out Friday, January 19, 2024 on digital, CD and vinyl.
Presales begin Wednesday, December 13 at SINE’s bandcamp (sineofficial.bandcamp.com) or at eMERGENCY heARTS and Re:Mission Entertainment bandcamp.
