Now might be the perfect time to settle into this artist’s music. Claire Rousay is based in San Antonio, Texas. Her music zeroes in on personal emotions and the minutiae of everyday life — voicemails, haptics, environmental recordings, stopwatches, whispers, and conversations — and interweaves them into soft, spacious neo-classical music. The best description of her music might be emo-ambient. Everything Perfect is Already Here is her fourth album. Her work, at its core, is an experiment in using commonplace environmental sounds to tug at the heartstrings directly. A sped-up tape recording and traffic sounds step over the track, though it’s hard to be sure whether they’re coming or going. On her latest record, A Kind of Promise, Rousay welcomes melodic elements into her compositions and that is perhaps why the music has started to expand beyond its niche audience. Run a bath, dim the lights and immerse yourself into a truly original world.
