Lazermortis is a full time funeral director and embalmer by day and an 80’s inspired synthwave/outrun artist by night. Hailing from Atlantic Canada, Lazer released her debut album Backseat Demons on June 30, 2020, which has achieved over 70K streams on Spotify with her standout track Below The Sunrise! Her upcoming EP is going to be a marriage between her career and her passion for synthwave, exploring how artificial intelligence might perceive death and the afterlife. Autonetic Afterlife is due July 31, 2021, and is graciously funded in part by Music NB’s MID Grant Program!
Press Release: Autonetic Afterlife
Autonetic Afterlife is an upcoming concept EP and Lazermortis' sophomore release after her moderately successful 2020 debut album Backseat Demons! This ambitious EP will be composed of 5 songs, each one representative of Lazer's imagining of what a silicon afterlife could look like. Being a non-theistic Satanist and in the death care industry has put Lazer in an interesting position to explore those themes through music, whether it is listening to the gates of heaven opening, or the toll of the bell where a cyborg falls from grace.
As with her previous album, Lazer will bring back her arsenal of VST emulations of vintage synthesizers such as the ARP 2600, Jup-8 V 4, and OB-Xa V, as well as new toys stock to FL Studio, such as Flex, which she has added to her workflow on top of Logic Pro X.
Working with Lazer on this incredible project will be Nick Fowler (FWLR Music), who will be mastering each track; art director of New Retro Wave, Sam Todhunter, whose amazing talent she is so grateful to have creating her album art; and JonBob Creative, who will be creating a video for each song that will express his interpretation of the music.
Autonetic Afterlife is due out July 31, 2021, and was given grant funding from Music New Brunswick's MID program! There is currently one single out, Crossing Over, and another one coming out January 15, 2021, Autonetic Highway.
