Canadian synthpop artist EVA X proudly presents her new digital-only EP, Electrowoman. Electrowoman was recorded and produced by Gaby Marie. It was mixed by Shane Stephenson and Chris Lacroix, and mastered by Chris Lacroix. EVA X is delighted to present two remixes as well, one of “Virtualsexua” l by Edmonton’s Virtual Terrorist, and one of “Subsume” by Philadelphia-based Silver Walks. The artwork for Electrowoman was created by Edmonton-based artist Konn Lavery.
“Electrowoman is my first EP and pretty much my first release as a solo artist/songwriter/producer ever. I was in a pop-punk band for a few years but wasn’t satisfied with the level of creative input and direction I had. After running into this in a couple projects, I started writing my own music. The first songs were almost bluesy, until I was introduced to synthpop and EBM by a few of my friends who pushed me to learn more about synths and production. Electronic music represented an opportunity to sort of own the creative process from start to finish, so I embraced it and here we are. This sort of theme of independence definitely comes up in my writing, most notably in “Subsume”, which is pretty much an entire song about the pressure to compromise on your career as a young woman to start a family and settle down” says Gaby Marie speaking about the EP.
EVA X is the solo project of Gaby Marie, a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and robot queen from Calgary, Canada. Stylistically, it’s a combination of minimal synth and futurepop, layered with rich vocals. Inspirationally, it’s an examination and celebration of love, loss, connection, and the unique tradeoffs and joys of being a woman and artist.
