Below is a commentary by the label.

Tenerife's Carolina Machado, best known as the drummer and singer of the space-rock psychedelic outfit Gaf y La Estrella de la Muerte, has released Akane's debut album, a new bedroom solo project.

Carolina, who has grown slowly over the last few years, is opening her heart to present an intimate collection of dreamy avant-pop titled Night-Time Birds.

Inspired by David Lynch's dreamy imagery and bizarre Americana landscapes, Carolina gracefully blends her own local sensibilities with the unfinished road movie's panoramic, realistic sound. Reconstructed tracks to create a personal musical language of vintage pop, rich ambient soundscapes and West Coast lo-fi electronica.Pursuing her sonic exploration with modular synthesis technology, she fuses exotic alien-like melodies with her trademark soothing shoegaze voice to push her sound even further.It's an album that drifts gracefully and seems like time has stopped...

The album's seven tracks were recorded live at the 7 Keroxen Festival performance in a waste gas tank, and count for a special collaboration with Gaf's bandmate César Chinarro on guitar.Arguably, Night-Time Birds won't be Carroll's last, showing once again that the diverse and colorful creative energy currently flowing from the Canary Islands shows no signs of slowing down.

Keroxen:

" Debut album by Akane, a new bedroom solo project by Tenerife's Carolina Machado - best known for her role as drummer and singer in space rock psychedelic outfit Gaf y La Estrella de la Muerte.

Cooked and slowly matured over the last couple of years, Carolina opens up her heart to present an intimate collection of dreamy avant pop songs under the banner title Night-Time Birds.

With various nods to David Lynch's dreamlike imagery and weird americana landscapes, Carolina gracefully merges her own local sensibilities to reimagine a panoramic, fictional soundtrack to an unmade road movie, creating a personal musical language made up of vintage pop songs, lush ambient soundscapes and West Coast lo-fi electronica. Her pursue of sonic exploration through modular synthesis techniques pushes her sound further out into a wider realm as she blends exotic alien-like melodies with her trademark soothing, shoe-gaze style voice. An album that seems to be floating gracefully and frozen in time…

The album's seven tracks were recorded live during her performance in a disused gas tank at the Keroxen festival in 2022 and counts with the special collaboration of her bandmate in Gaf César Chinarro on guitar. ll hear from Carol demonstrating once again the varied and eclectic creative energy currently flowing from the Canary archipelago shows no sign of slowing down."
