“No Muse” is the massive first single from Twin Earth – the upcoming sophomore album from the Melbourne-based producer/singer/songwriter/engineer/immensely talented polymath Aphir (aka Becki Whitton).

In “No Muse” she created a piece of music that shows a multitude of personalities – you’ll hear delicate and softly sung vocal melodies as well as boldly distorted runs that border on shouting, layers of autotuned vocals in contrary motion as well as her ever-powerful natural voice and choral echoes. The production is expansive and compelling with self-sampled vocals, unpredictable amounts of amorphous electronic noise and sound manipulation, and a palette of pounding drums that grip the layers of heavenly synths and vocals into a vigorous cadence.
