Today, Manchester’s LoneLady returns with new single “(There Is) No Logic”, a punchy electro and R&B tinged track, released via Warp Records. “(There Is) No Logic” fuses humanity and hardware, with unrulychopped-up vocal samples layered over twisting machine-funk rhythms. The song was written, producedand performed by LoneLady whose real name is Julie Campbell. Alongside this announcement LoneLady has announceda UK & Ireland tour, with dates in Glasgow, London, Manchester, Cardiff, Newcastle, Dublin, Belfast and more.

Inspired by Memento Mori paintings, a medieval art style that served as a symbolic representation of theinevitability of death, “(There Is) No Logic” re-interprets this for the 21st century. LoneLady’s tongue isfirmly in her cheek, pairing blackly humorous tidings of doom with an irrepressible dancefloor energy. Speaking on the track, LoneLady says,“it just really encapsulates so many cool electro sounds and evensome r’n’b vocal stylings. It was fun sampling ‘do’and ‘dah’ vocals and running them through the sequencer to get that choppy-collaged effect, definitelya Cabaret Voltaire influence there. The technologygods were happy that day and it all came togetherin a really fresh and immediate way.”

There is an immediacy and raw energy to the track:a playful spirit in the middle of the thumping electronic maze. This was a purposeful choice from LoneLady,showing an artist with true confidence in their craft. “The melody came almost instantaneously and the lyricsalmost wrote themselves. Some of these vocalsare in fact the ‘scratch’ takes, or first takes.”“(There Is) No Logic” is an incisive return following her previous album ‘Hinterland’, it’s the sound of a creative engine igniting once again.
