Extended 12-inch EP on Transparent blue vinyl.
Castles In Space are delighted to welcome Kayla Painter to the fold and she brings with her a brilliant new extended EP, ‘Infinite You’.
Following a few false-start early releases with other labels, Kayla has been building her own head of steam via her Bandcamp page since 2017 or so, self-releasing a slew of fine offerings. Chief among are the attention-grabbing ‘In The Witch Elm’ single which found her working with sounds from the Delia Derbyshire archive, the ‘Cannibals At Sea’ cassette EP on which she explores her fascinating mixed Fijian/British heritage, and the recent pink cassettes of ‘Planet 9’, a journey to the outer reaches of our solar system.
A self-confessed space freak, she’s a big fan of the ‘Alien’ films, oh and ‘Arrival’, with a taste for sci-fi aesthetics… which all very neatly tees us up for that debut Castles In Space offering. So what’s ‘The Infinite You’ all about?
“We measure time and our experience on earth in a particular way,” says Kayla. “But in space none of those rules apply. At the edge of a black hole space, time and the laws of physics no longer apply. That’s amazing. If you take away these parameters, these ways of measuring our understanding, what are you left with? It completely blows my mind.
“We live by these measurements so rigidly, We think this is what time is, and this is what a day is… and we take that as absolute truth, but none of that is real, it’s all just constructed, which I find exciting. We like to think we understand our existence, but when you start to look into space, you realise we don’t really understand much at all. ‘Infinite you’ explores multiple possibilities of existence, it’s about looking to the universe and questioning everything we thought we knew.”
