ALU = Possession + Sorcery + Intoxication + Passion
Alu has been called many things…An Indie Phenomenon, The Princess of Darkness, Echoes Radio Sweetheart, Martian Music Maker, Chanteuse Noir…
But Alu is a woman who simply cannot ignore the music in her head. She was put on this Planet to share those special sounds.
Critically acclaimed Los Angeles based composer Alu returns with her third album “Madhouse Masquerade.” This latest collection blends the darkness and apocalyptic despair of her debut album “Infomercial Gasmask” with the ethereal and whimsical charm of her sophomore release “Lobotomy Sessions.” The end result takes the listener on a surreal and psychological journey to Pangaea and back.
“Madhouse Masquerade” features 11 cinematic soundscapes comprised of Alu’s brilliant lyrical observations of contemporary life. Each song paints an intimate portrait of fragile topics such as perception, insanity and love – all woven together with Alu’s rich, velvety voice and unique instrumentation. Her captivating music reveals an escape to a timeless, dark and magical underworld.
Alu’s past musical endeavors have been featured on multiple film projects such as “Juncture” and Clive Barker’s “The Midnight Meat Train” as well as Public Radio International, NPR and Echoes Radio. Based on the exceptional quality of her music and the recent release of her quirky animated video “Casket Salesman”, Alu continues to prove that she is a true artist with integrity, longevity and vision.
