AYA, formerly known as LOFT, has a debut album on the way.
Entitled im hole, the LP is slated for release on 22 October via Hyperdub. It’ll land on both digital and physical formats, and the latter will come with a hardback cloth-bound book designed in collaboration with Air Max ’97.
Accompanying the announcement is the single Emley lights us moor, featuring Iceboy Violet. Watch below.
According to the press release, the tracks on the upcoming LP are “autobiographical vignettes”. The title, im hole, challenges “queer art’s tendency to veer towards repetitive solipsism”. It references both “the unwieldy mix of self-actualisation and sexualisation that bogs down cultural perceptions of the trans experience”.
