Badlands: My Time Will Come Again

Swedish producer, composer and sound designer Catharina Jaunviksna has announced her new album under the moniker Badlands. Call to Love will be out on November 18th, 2022 via RITE, and it's introduced with the somber lead single My Time Will Come Again

Call to Love is the follow-up to last year’s very well received Djinn, and a step toward a new sound for the artist, with a darkened blend of electronic and orchestral instrumentation, vinyl samples, field recordings, as well as analogue malfunctions and overdubs that cohere into a blend aptly defined as 'outlaw electronica.'

Badlands explains: “The soundscape has been crucial in getting my message across; what’s beautiful and vulnerable emerges through imperfection and letting yourself lose control. The record is a call to/for merciless, intuitive love, in an age where love is capitalized and being emotionally unavailable has become a desirable ideal. It’s a tribute to love in all its wonderful, brutal, mean, horny and embarrassing forms.” 

Bandlands' new approach comes across as both contemplative and excitable, with analogue compositions fusing a big array of styles like new wave, dreampop, trip-hop, and disco into the electronic pop of the music's core.
