Fast rising London based alt-pop musician / animator Psyrena (Madeleine Wise) returns with an effervescent, modern day electro-pop jam ‘Jedi Master’, lifted from her forthcoming EP ‘Quarantella Rockefella’ due later this year and follows on from her surrealscape, [adult swim] inspired animated video for ‘Rainbows & Unicorns.
Mixed and mastered by Yak Bondy (John Digweed, Timo Maas, Hex Hector), ‘Jedi Master’ is a powerful 8-bit electronica synth-fest with a much deeper message.
“It all started with this synth melody, which I wanted to find words to. Then rewatching Star Wars during lockdown, I was inspired by the wisdom of Yoda and somehow I ended up finding a proverb by Xún Zi, a Confucian philosopher. Two Chinese friends read this out to me and it fit the melody to a T – as if it was meant to be – that’s how ‘Jedi Master’ was born.” -Psyrena
Psyrena is no stranger to international cultures. Her own tri-lingual upbringing has led to recording her festive EP “Psyrena’s Christmas” (2018) featuring seven traditional songs sung in seven different languages. 2019 saw the release of her “Fallen Angel” EP, showing a darker side & inspiring critical acclaim by journalists and fellow artists.
Being a multi-instrumentalist herself, her writing and production work has already been featured on [adult swim] and Cartoon Network. Together with her creative partner Yak Bondy and Ivor Novello composer Hélène Muddiman she co-wrote and performed music for the Original Motion Picture ‘Bliss!’ (2016), conducted by Eimear Noone, the first ever female orchestra leader performing at the Oscars in 2020.
