The Amsterdam-based, Japanese-American artist Golin blurs the lines between mainstream pop and envelope-pushing electronic music. Recalling the cybernetic pop experimentations of SOPHIE, AG Cook and like-minded hyperpop-innovators, Golin’s jittery and skittish pop songs sparkle with a radiant personality. Through her distinctive sound, Golin offers a unique musical perspective on the way that her art can mediate contemporary experiences of cultural and physical displacement. Golin’s most recent solo EP Crush is a compelling showcase of herself as singer-songwriter, producer and performer. This playful, exciting and catchy collection of synthetic and ethereal earworms is an electrifying invitation into Golin’s idiosyncratic sonic world.
Golin performs on Saturday 9 April.
