Los Angeles based art pop artist Deradoorian is releasing her cosmic and hypnotic second album today, Find The Sun. Find The Sun is not the record Angel Deradoorian originally sat down to make. It’s a waypoint on a spiritual journey of acceptance, the result of years of lifting veils that obscured her innermost self, and coming to the realization that in order to find peace, she might need to cede a bit of control. The result is something that could only be found by the physical act of its construction.
Deradoorian spoke with The New York Times this week to discuss how the album’s music intertwines themes of astrology, meditation and self-awareness. “The result sounds like Can with an acid-folk singer probing deep spiritual themes,” it says. Read the feature in full –
Sequenced with a double vinyl disc package in mind (its only available physical format), the record is broken up into quadrants, helping guide the listener through its various twists and turns. The connecting thread is the theme of internal exploration, reaching for the best version of yourself.
“Overall, a lot of these songs are about trying to reach yourself – how to be your most
brilliant self,” Deradoorian says. “…because we come from a culture that doesn’t actually support this. We are so deeply programmed to obey societal boundaries that we don’t even know the power we contain within.”
