Loraine James has revealed a new alias, Whatever The Weather.
Her first release under the moniker is a self-titled album, which is mastered by longtime influence Telefon Tel Aviv and will come out via the Ghostly International label on 8th April. Watch the video for '17ºC' from the album below.
The album sees James draw on much of the electronic music that she listened to during her later teenage years, by artists such as Lusine, HTRK and Telefon Tel Aviv. She adopted a jam-based approach while working on it, which she describes in a press release as "free-flowing, stopping when I felt like I was done".
