I love how quickly he's putting out new music though Xen and Mutant are still keeping me more than satisfied.

Since Alejandro Ghersi (aka Arca) emerged at the beginning of the decade, his sound has continued to become more undefinable yet more physical—overwhelming sensations, at times, matched with pure physical force. He’s pioneered a fluid, flexible, and often grotesque style of electronic production; what’s tied together all of his vertigo-inducing music—from his debut LP Xen to the boundary pushing Entrañas—was its unpredictability. Now, he’s decided to pivot completely, dissolving the shroud of sounds that made him famous: On, “Piel,” the opening track from his forthcoming third album Arca, Ghersi opens up, and introduces his stunning singing voice to the world.

Ghersi sings the entire track in Spanish, conjuring up the same reverence of opera or church. In the past, the Venezuelan-born producer’s tracks have shared qualities with chamber music, but never has he sounded so spiritual and so dramatic. His enunciation, the way his each and every word coils around the sharp, acidic tone of guitar reverb and cavernous bass synths, is intoxicating. “Piel” is a delightfully strange song that lifts from well-trod emotions like ardor or holy passion, and repackages them in hypermodern fashion. This first taste of Arca does more than subvert the expectations we have of Ghersi: It annihilates them.

Piel is astounding. The textures of sound make the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end, there's nothing else like it.

You can tell Jesse Kanda and Arca have such a close working relationship, the artwork compliments and elevates the music so well.

Arca talks about the album in an interview he did for i-D. It's a good read.

I am still SHOOK, and I can't play virtually anything else than these new songs of his.

^So good.
I'm not a huge fan of his solo work, but damn his productions are amazing. However, i'm looking forward to hear the album.

Reverie and Anoche are quite good.
Pleasure over matter.

I don't expect anything less than my #1 album of the year. Everything has been absolutely out of this world so far.

I thought my days of fangirling and stanning like crazy for an artist were over, but damn, I'm really in love with this person's music.

I can't seem to get those three songs out of my system.
