With influences ranging from Johann Sebastian Bach to Sigur Ros to Annie Lennox, Kristin Hoffmann makes poised, expressive, and powerful music that penetrates the intellectual and spiritual sides of art. Her forthcoming EP, The Human Compass: New Directions, blends undertones of classical music, angelic vocals harmonies, and electronic percussion into an ethereal Renaissance pop sound.
A perfect example of the records's genre-fusing juxtaposition of the natural and the synthetic, the new single, "Ghosts", contrasts raw, breathy vocal lines with robotic, echoey responses and layers of warm piano tones are pitted against industrial sounds with broken percussion patterns. Look out for the new EP, The Human Compass: New Directions, out in March 2014.
