After years recording under various monikers, from her youth back in Phoenix to her adulthood in New York, Moore released a few early projects as koleżanka before making her official debut with 2021’s Place Is. Created with long-time koleżanka collaborator Ark Calkins, Place Is is an exegesis into the very notion of “place” and all of the ways place can be interacted with and identified. After her debut release, she joined ascendant art-punk group Foyer Red. This chapter became the genesis for koleżanka’s sophomore album, Alone With The Sound The Mind Makes. Fittingly for an album concerned with the internal workings of our thoughts and emotions, Moore let herself wander when writing Alone With The Sound The Mind Makes, following stream of consciousness wherever it led. Moore had to learn to navigate it solo, to “make friends” with various unsettled states, and in the process, she wrote an album that dives deep into a person’s reckoning with themself, their body, their experiences, their perceptions.
Alone With The Sound The Mind Makes is set to be released February 17, 2023.
