Introducing Ana Lola Roman
aaamusic | On 10, Oct 2011
Ana Lola Roman is a multi-faceted persona for sure. The New York via Berlin songstress is a woman of many talents; simultaneously a sound designer, a choreographer, a multi-instrumentalist and a highly skilled composer. Her influences are just as diverse; she cites an eclectic combination of flamenco, tango, 80s pop, Sheffield synthpop and industrial as being definitive to her sound.
Working alongside notable producer Jean Luc Sinclair (Nine Inch Nails, Scissor Sisters), Roman presents her latest single ‘No Architect’ (released Oct 2011), a synth-driven song tackling the idea of breaking free from a synthetic, dystopian existence, portrayed with a surprisingly upbeat tone. ‘No Architect’ is an ultimately uplifting affair, the four-to-the-floor beats coalescing with the pounding synth melodies and Roman’s defiant vocals, scorning a former beau preventing her freedom.
Roman’s releases represent a constantly evolving talent for combining avant-garde icyness with the art of subtly composing memorable moments of intelligent pop, each single refining and focusing her unique sound a little more towards what could very well be her magnum opus, a debut album set for release in early 2012.
Ana is currently midway through intensive recording sessions for her upcoming debut and will be resuming live performances shortly, keep your ear to the ground and you’ll surely hear her coming a mile off. In the meantime, ‘No Architect’ will be available from 7th November 2011.
