Landra’s album “Metamorphine” was a disquieting in the air. By having a look at her previous work experience where she worked for Jesus on Etasy as an “erotically keyboard predator”; then expectation from a camp majesty considered to be high. Whereas the resulting expectation from this album was low, quiet and frightened.
