Listen to Migration by Lykanthea here
Migration is the first in a series of releases inspired by the 4,000-year-old Sumerian tale of the goddess Inanna. Integrating field recordings from Ramgopal's travels in Greece, it shares the range of personal revelations and challenges Inanna faces during a transformative journey to and back from the underworld.
Migration, Lykanthea's solo debut, released July 29, 2014 digitally and on cassette. Written and recorded in Chicago, IL and the Greek island of Delos, the EP enshrines Ramgopal's distinctive vocal style in lingering soundscapes and song structures based on tragic Greek choruses, marking a departure from her work in electronic duo Love and Radiation and her recent collaboration with dream-pop outfit Savage Sister.
