Overview. Produced both at her home studio and on tour, between Berlin, New York and Mexico, La Fraicheur wrote the “Weltschmerz EP” following two impulses. One being the desire to make music closer to the “no mercy/take no prisoners” biting sounds of her engaging powerful techno sets, the other the necessity to deal with overwhelming feelings of anger, disgust and frustration born in the backlash following her debut album release and newfound visibility confronting her with the invasive violence of misogynistic trolls.
Hence 4 new tracks with a more distorted sound, at times cutting, at times slimy, often restless and howling, built on the liberating energy of dance as escapist solace and techno as catharsis.
