Sleap-E: 8106

1. Product Details

Sleap-E is reclaiming herself. The Italian singer-songwriter's second album, 8106, captures the spirit of play; the child-like instinct to pursue what you love without compromise - and here it is, that particular magic that rarely survives adulthood, remarkably intact. Each of it's eleven songs are vibrant shards which build a mosaic of Asia Martina Morabito's world: the growing pains of your early twenties, remaining faithful to your dreams despite the hostility of adulthood, places of escape both real and imagined - and the pulse of Bologna, her home and north star. As a student of old-school iconoclasts like The Fall and inspired by the outsider streak of Jimmy Whispers and Daniel Johnston, it was not any particular musical quality of theirs which Asia wanted to channel in Sleap-E, but their confidence to "explode in a raw, free and authentic way." Though her sound has shifted from the tender bedroom pop of her 2020 EP Mellow and her 2022 debut album Pouty Lips which was bedecked with jubilant brass and Mediterranean rhythms, it's her self-belief which endures. 8106 is Sleap-E's most raucous, unpolished and playful offering to date, steeped in the influence of "egg-punk", an internet-grown genre which seeks to satirise the tropes of punk with it's danceable irreverence. There is joy to be found, Asia feels, in refusing to conform, and it has brought her closer to herself than ever before. But to gain her sense of self, first, she had to lose sight of it. Summer of 2023, when the outlines of the record were made, was a difficult time for her. 8106 was the number of the hotel room she felt confined to, alone and adrift from comfort when she was working away from home. Writing this album was her getaway car. "It represents an important choice I made," she explains. "I chose happiness. I chose myself." The title represents a kind of mental post-it note reminding herself to stay focused on what she loves; it's a talisman to protect her from hard times. She returned home, and there she began recording the album in residency at the Bronson Club, a hive of like-minded creatives and mentors who helped it take it's final form. At home, her own music was played freely and instinctively. The artwork for 8106 is by Noemi Vola, a prolific Bolognian illustrator and author who specialises in designs for children, which reflects the "funky, fairytale mood" of the record itself.
