She Spread Sorrow (Alice Kundalini) Interview

Source: Musique Machine.

Since 2015’s Rumspringa, She Spread Sorrow – the solo project of Italian artist Alice Kundalini – has become something of an unstoppable force in the industrial and power electronics scenes. With Mine (2017) and Midori (2018), both on Cold Spring Records, She Spread Sorrow takes a measured- even delicate- approach to sound, but is no less brutal and unrelenting for it. Musique Machine spoke to Alice to find out more about the project.
