Anna Fox Rochinski, the lead singer of Boston's Quilt, has announced her debut solo record, Cherry, out on March 26.
Anyone looking for a follow-up to the psych-folk sounds of her main band's work will be in for something new here as she moves past the more traditional, classic sounds and into new territory. “I lost interest in chord-based guitar music and constructed this record mostly from melodies and beats and bass lines, with guitar as an accessory rather than necessary ingredient," she said in a statement on the new record. Anna went on to say that the record is “the most personal stuff I've ever written," describing it as "basically a break up album, but one that documents a time period ranging from the last few dying months of a six-year relationship and straight into the period following, when I was truly on my own for the first time in a very long time. A break up not just with a guy, but with an entire place and an entire life.” While I still have hope for another Quilt record, it's exciting to follow Rochinski on this new path as she explores new sonic textures and influences.
Cherry is out on March 26 via Don Giovani.
