For Moloton’s ninth outing, we’re welcoming Orphan Ann with their debut LP ‘The Practice of Surrender’.
The duo, consisting of Sofia Al Rammal Sturdza (SARS, Född Död) and Anja Enerud (Masskultur) combine sharp, penetrating vocal chants with atonal drones, bleak samples and distorted drum machine patterns to create their own pitch-black take on synth music.
released January 25, 2019
Composed, recorded and produced by Anja Enerud and Sofia Al Rammal Sturdza in Stockholm
Mixed at Tropiska Föreningen
Mastered by Jonathan Dakers
supported by 14 fans who also own “The Practice of Surrender”
Concise and hauntingly beautiful. Someone already mentioned Nico. It’s probably no coincidence that BEB reissued the album by Caroline K in the same year. Another point of reference that comes to my mind is A.C. Marias. Excellent. Stefan Karolewicz

Abrasive and anxiety-inducing avant-noise gem, gracefully welding techno-industrial, ambient and power electronics with darker atmospherics. A statement of direction and purpose from Northern Electronics, a nosedive into the dense and sticky blackness of contemporary raver culture and its decadent, subterranean overtones of hypersexuality and secrecy. Quintessential digital vitalism. Stéfan Németh
