Alexandra Drewchin is an American artist, singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer currently based in New York, performing as Eartheater.
She has released three solo albums – ‘Metalepsis’ (2015), ‘RIP Chrysalis’ (2015) and ‘IRISIRI’ (2018) – as well as a mixtape named ‘Trinity’ (2019). ‘IRISIRI’ has been described as ‘push[ing] the whole album into a different realm’ (The Quietus), in relation to her use of voice, now the predominant feature in the music, contrasting to her previous usage of it as a textural element. Her voice provides an impressive range of pitches and vocalisations. ‘IRISIRI’ boldly explores the themes of gender, sex and the human experience.
Eartheater has been reviewed by the likes of The Quietus, The Wire, Resident Advisor, Pitchfork and i-D, and has toured North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Eartheater has had music synced to advertisements such as Converse’s ‘The Woman Who Lived In A Shoe’, and runway shows from Chanel, Acne and Proenza Schouler. She has also walked as a model in Fashion Week shows for Mugler and Puppets & Puppets.
Eartheater collaborated with the Outlands Network on the commissioned production ‘Fracture Patterns’ which toured the UK in June 2019, an extraordinary piece of interwoven music and visuals. She also wrote and collaborated on a six-part orchestra with Alarm Will Sound, ‘one of the most vital and original ensembles on the American music scene’ (NY Times).
Eartheater new album, Phoenix; Flames Are Dew Upon My Skin will be released September 2020 on PAN.
