about

Peptalk is Michael Carter (electronics), Shayna Dunkelman (percussion) and Angelica Negron (voice).

Drawing on their love of Exotica, J-Pop, Dub and the many variants
of electronic music, Peptalk’s visceral music combines numerous
exotic instruments with lush electronic sounds and airy vocals.
They endeavour to create a hyperreal world both sonically and
visually by blending fragments of memory from their lives in Tokyo,
San Juan and Los Angeles.

Each member also plays with bands and artists such as Yoko Ono,
Xiu Xiu, Thurston Moore, Balún, and Tyondai Braton, but by
joining forces they create rich musical arrangements that are both
highly original and, crucially, highly accessible.

The concept for this, their debut album is derived in part from the
sci-fi and cyberpunk elements of Blade Runner, the haunting and mysterious elements of Twin Peaks, and the surreal tropical vibe of Fantasy Island. It touches on themes of solitude, escapism, and cultural curiosity while drifting between intimate lyrical moments and dreamy ambient sound textures.
