Today, Manchester’s LoneLady returns with new single “(There Is) No Logic”, a punchy electro and R&B tinged track, released via Warp Records. “(There Is) No Logic” fuses humanity and hardware, with unruly chopped-up vocal samples layered over twisting machine-funk rhythms. The song was written, produced and performed by LoneLady whose real name is Julie Campbell.
Speaking on the track, LoneLady says,
“it just really encapsulates so many cool electro sounds and even some r’n’b vocal stylings. It was fun sampling ‘do’ and ‘dah’ vocals and running them through the sequencer to get that choppy-collaged effect, definitely a Cabaret Voltaire influence there. The technology gods were happy that day and it all came together in a really fresh and immediate way.”
“The melody came almost instantaneously and the lyrics almost wrote themselves. Some of these vocals are in fact the ‘scratch’ takes, or first takes.”
Heavily affected vocals sung in LoneLady’s same spirit dance over the electronic beat which builds and folds and warps through out the track. The addictive skipping bass rhythm that burrows its way in lets the melody and vocals really shine on top. Campbell is a one woman creative machine.
