Delorca x Turner of Wheels: Misery Tourist (Part One)

Created remotely over the internet during lockdown, Misery Tourist is the new collaborative single by Montreal-based/Australian singer Delorca aka Simone Pitot, and Canadian electronic music composer and orchestrator Turner of Wheels aka Shane Turner.

The beautiful nine-minute epic recalls the ethereality of 4AD via a more contemporary electronica lens, with a gloomy character in full view, paired with cinematic and ambient elements which accompany perfectly the airy vocals. Despite its adventurous nature, Misery Tourist appears to be mostly song-based and fairly accessible, and it evokes some of the emotional fragility found in later Recoil albums.

For this inventive collaboration of sound and concept design, the artists enlisted Chris Bigg for the art direction who has previously worked with The Pixies, Cocteau Twins and Lush among many others.
