Australian Jamie-Lee Dimes has collaborated with engineer and producer Callum Barter on her debut release, the mini-album ‘Liminality’.
The album is named for a psychological state, in which one’s identity dissolves, and normal limits to thought, self understanding, and behaviour are undone.
The title refers to Jamie-Lee’s experiences relocating to New York City in order to attend a dance school on Broadway. The mini-album was recorded over the summer in a cabin in the Mojave Desert:
“This new project was inspired by my experiences over the last four years. I feel as though I have come through something that in turn has allowed me to grow, and be inspired to produce something that is connected to who I am as an artist.”
First track, ‘Trouble’, is a brilliant choice for first single, as it begins with brooding beats and progressive strings, drawing in and accentuating Jamie-Lee’s anthemic vocals, which remind us in style of Lana Del Rey.
Production of the mini album was enabled through layering the songs with a grand piano and a violin, mixed with reverb and noise, to heighten the theme of disorientation.
Jamie-Lee is preparing some show dates in the lead up to next year, and will be touring the US at the end of March 2017.
