Los Angeles producer Groundislava a.k.a. Jasper Patterson is known for his contributions to the Wedidit collective, as well as having a moniker that conjures up childlike imagination and wonder. Following last month’s Feel the Heat EP, Patterson is now gearing up to release his third studio album, Frozen Throne, which follows a “thematic narrative of the search for real love in a future cyber-based reality.” Spoiler: the album ends with Groundislava getting a Tinder account. Underwhelming, I know.
In advance of Frozen Throne’s September 23 release via Wedidit and Friends of Friends, Patterson has elected to share lead single “Girl Behind the Glass,” which showcases sensual vocals from L.A. duo Rare Times a.k.a. Anthony Calonico and Alex Talan. The duo’s vocals are featured prominently throughout Frozen Throne, providing words to Patterson’s emotive sci-fi narrative. “Girl Behind the Glass” plays out like an 80s R&B ballad setting the mood for 23rd-century lovemaking, but was released in 2014 and can be heard below.
