Chicago-based artist Lia Kohl has announced her third full-length album, Normal Sounds, set for release on August 30 via Moon Glyph.

Offering a first glimpse into the album, Kohl has shared the lead single ‘Car Alarm, Turn Signal,’ featuring flute and electronics from respected New York City sound artist Ka Baird.

Kohl explains:

“‘Car Alarm, Turn Signal’ is an attempt to capture the overlapping polyrhythms of the streets around my house: a late-night Uber home, a car alarm outside the neighborhood market, a turn signal in a bird-filled parking lot. I’ve woven these recordings together, mimicking them with cello and synths, expanding them into a lilting, expansive lullaby. The track opens with Ka Baird’s fierce, avian, flute playing; a shock of sunlight before we’re lulled to sleep. The video mirrors my process in making the album: taking something mundane — in this case, shadows on the sidewalk — and paying enough attention to them to see their beautiful, ephemeral geometry.”

Stream ‘Car Alarm, Turn Signal’ today and preorder Normal Sounds ahead of its August 30 release with Moon Glyph.
