More Ephemerol debut new single "Cult Classics"



Los Angeles synth act More Ephemerol consists of members Sea Fjerstad and Tamara Sky. Though the project has one previously released LP, "Fractal Bath", featuring an array of experimental compositions by Sea, the new material ditches all digital instruments and adds the voice and presence of Sky to the equation, establishing More Ephemerol as a strictly analog synth duo, delivering a newly focused sound inspired by the likes of proto-new wave/minimal wave favorites such as Experimental Products, The Modern Mannequins, Turquoise Days, Oppenheimer Analysis, and early Human League.

'Cult Classics' discusses the human desire to be accepted into groups of individuals who we feel completely outside of, or invisible to. The lyrics focus on intrigue and the raw sort of vulnerability within this rather universal desire.

The next step in taking reneeruin.com forward! Podcast incoming!

The next step in taking reneeruin.com forward! Podcast incoming!


My new big venture is to embark on a podcast series yet to be named. This new venture is extremely passionate to me and encompasses my passion and dedication to music, arts, mental health, and the female journey. 
I want to start a podcast that I can actually relate to. Not one by a celebrity/self helper. A gritty in the trenches look at mental health & gender & all the shit shows in between. For those of us who don’t have money, fame, power, resources, support. For the real girls out there.
Featuring personal entries and interviews with other women struggling to find their space in an industry and world against adversity whether mental health, male politics in creative industries and public spaces. 
We will deal with all issues pertaining to mental health, imposter syndrome, rising above and the daily grind of documenting the journey. We will be highlighting great resources and organizations that can help with mental health, mindfulness, and bringing the community together to share in a common goal - creativity, music, mental health, and awareness. 
A podcast that I and many others like me can actually relate to. Not one by a celebrity/self helper. A gritty in the trenches look at mental health & gender & all the shit shows in between. For those of us who don’t have money, fame, power, resources, support. For the real girls out there.

To get this up and running I need some basic equipment to set this goal in motion.
