After spending nearly a decade playing in various rock and folk bands, in 2014 she injured her hands in a construction mishap and had to take an extended break from guitar in order to heal, a hiatus which led to an adventure in making electronic music.
In 2016 Pallas Athene recorded her first single “What I Want” which was selected as a demo feature for FatCat Records UK, and is set for vinyl release by the same label in July, 2019. [“Brought to Light Vol.1” Compilation]
Pallas Athene’s debut EP is an ethereal dark pop record that explores the theme of man vs the machine and is a deeper dive into digital and analog synthesis, field recordings and creative sampling. With lo-fi dream vocals and minimalistic beats, the songs have an ethereal and contemplative quality.
Ultimately, Pallas Athene is the result of introspection, isolation, and rehabilitation.
