The duo, consisting of DIY veteran Anja Enerud (Masskultur collective) and Sofia Al Rammal Sturdza (SARS, Född Död) burst onto the scene with their pitch-black take on synth music, combining sharp, penetrating vocal chants with atonal drones and haunting drum machine patterns. Orphan Ann has previously released their music on the Danish label Posh Isolation, where they contributed with four tracks to the ‘You And Me Now’ cassette compilation. They have been performing their live show at various stages around the world, including MUTEK in Mexico City and Norbergfestival in Sweden.
‘The Practice of Surrender’ consists of nine tracks, all recorded, produced and mixed by the duo themselves in their studio collective Tropiska Föreningen in Stockholm. It is indubitably a proof of a healthy Stockholm scene, where both Moloton and Orphan Ann are leading the way, pushing the Swedish experimental sound forward with a glare.
