Everyone's in Love - Single from Amy Kohn's upcoming album, PlexiLusso

"Marvelous musical bijoux" - Van Dyke Parks

PlexiLusso, the new album of lush, glossy orchestral pop by composer, pianist and singer Amy Kohn, will be releasing September 16 on CD and LP with the single “Everyone’s in Love” available digitally August 19.

“Plexi” is the knee-high table in Amy's childhood 19th floor livingroom - she would look through its sides, seeing infinite reflections. “Lusso” is the finish on her beloved rhinestoned accordion. PlexiLusso captures this lustrous, reflective quality in everything from the song structures themselves, to her textural arrangements, to the polished sonic quality and glossy, surreal artwork. Featuring 17 musicians on everything from winds to windmills, the album began on a buttery Fazioli piano at Italy’s esteemed Artesuono studio, continued at five New York area studios including Joe Mardin’s NuNoise, then back to Artesuono and Amy’s Venetian riverside rental for final touches (plastic bags, Murano drinking glasses…). Mixing by Max Trisotto and mastering by Pieter Snapper at Babajim in Istanbul complete the album's vivid sound. PlexiLusso features original photography by renowned music photographer Merri Cyr, with images, art direction and design by the illustrious Anglo-Scandinavian team, Non-Format.

Five remixes have been released in advance of the album: “Emma” by London’s Roshi Feat. Pars Radio, "Ellipsis" by London's Segwey, “Flight Simulator” by Montreal’s Vincent Bergeron, “LED” by Barcelona’s GiulianoGiusCobelli, and “Heartache is an Orange” by Albanian Kole Laca of electronic duo 2 Pigeons, and two more remixes are forthcoming by Padova's Bruno Santo and Brooklyn’s Ben Rubin, who is also the album’s bass player. A video of PlexiLusso’s “Linguaglossa” is being made by The Netherlands’ Bernd Eilts.

about

Amy Kohn Brooklyn, New York

Amy Kohn is applauded by some of the top composer/producers in modern song: Van Dyke Parks says she’s “Brimming with such talent!” and the late, legendary Producer Arif Mardin dubbed her a “Musical Devil in a Red Dress." Amy always seeks sounds she’s never heard, and it comes through in the “oddly structured beauty” of her highly arranged, effervescent music. ... more

Track Name: Everyone's in Love
Everyone’s in love ‘cause I am

Do you notice that you are
kissing a kiss that
emanated from a gasp
taken inappropriately
as displaced Brazilian neon
fit to souls of 100 Italian tadpoles? Ciao!

Everyone’s in love ‘cause I am

On gymnasium TVs,
rings crimped, beautiful stomachs
It’s a child after all, lying, desperate skateboard freefall
And that pulsating treadmill heart?
Don’t say it’s only squares of electric measurement. No!

Everyone’s in love ‘cause I am

And that silhouette of skyline’s
not sweet blades of grass you can
settle right up to your mouth?
Blow through -
make a purified sound? Ah…

It cannot be true!
I see you kissing!
