Alt-pop musician Psyrena (Madeleine Wise) returns with a luscious 2-step, UK garage themed remix of new track ‘Ring Ring Ring’ by Leeds DJ / producer Blak Habit, lifted from her forthcoming EP ‘Quarantella Rockefella’ due this summer.
Blak Habit says: “Having worked with Psyrena previously, I really like being able to craft bouncy, bubbly rhythms to compliment her voice. A great project to be part of.”
A deft animator and visual artist, Psyrena created and designed animated videos for singles ‘Jedi Master’ and ‘Rainbows and Unicorns’ released earlier this year. Drawing on a myriad of influences, she combines modern day synth-pop with soulful, emotive harmonies.
Psyrena’s recent single ‘Jedi Master’ reached the Top Ten in the CD Charts and gained support on Kiss, BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Capital, Rinse FM, Ministry of Sound with DJs Blakk Habit and the almighty EZ. Recent press (Vice, Art Factory, iDJ etc.) has compared her eclectic music style of art-pop electronica and orchestral sounds to Robyn, Gorillaz, Massive Attack and James Bond Soundtracks. She has been recognised for her highly individual videos like ‘Rainbows and Unicorns’, in which she created her own animated world to escape the apathy of lockdown, going viral on YouTube and ‘Jedi Master’ featuring augmented reality masks in collaboration with the digital world’s finest AI creators.
Being a multi-instrumentalist herself, her writing and production work has already been featured on [adult swim] and Cartoon Network. Together with her creative partner Yak Bondy and Ivor Novello composer Hélène Muddiman she co-wrote and performed music for the Original Motion Picture ‘Bliss!’ (2016), conducted by Eimear Noone, the first ever female orchestra leader performing at the Oscars in 2020.
