They/Live – Ablation – CD

Band: They/Live

Label: Other Voices Records

Format: CD


Named after the 1988 John Carpenter sci-fi/action film, Whitney Mower’s new project They/Live pays homage to artists of that era (like Kate Bush and Cocteau Twins ) while weaving in sounds, themes, and a powerful female perspective very much rooted in the present (think Grimes, Juana Molina, The Knife).

Using ethereal synth lines, intricate drum patterns, and haunting vocal layers, Mower builds complex dystopic scenes. In They/Live’s universe, a vulnerable female character finds power and offers hope despite the ominous landscape of the future, despite the pain of an oppressive past—her precise soprano voice urges, “Yes I know the pleasure’s not enough . . . if you let me I’ll lift you out of the darkness.”
