French label TV Showw are set to unveil the next release from Bangkok-based artist Wanton Witch. ‘Golden Child Syndrome’ follows her eponymous debut LP on Lucy’s Stroboscopic Artefacts label, an album that explored hair-raising industrial textures and relentless rhythms.
Originally from Borneo, it wasn’t until relocating to the Thai capital that Wanton Witch began to engage with the various musical communities of which she’s become an intrinsic part. As a co-founder of the queer underground collective Non Non Non, she’s helped to promote events that have become a staple of the city’s nightlife.
Our pick from ‘Golden Child Syndrome’ is ‘Scapegoat’. The producer doesn’t shy away from polyrhythmic complexity and intricate sound design on this one, which descends ever further into menacing industrial territory as it progresses.
‘Golden Child Syndrome’ is scheduled for release 4 March via TV Showw. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
