About

"20jazzfunkgreats has found its new chanteuse, Portable Morla, who produces digital torch songs to light data-rich landscapes, think of them as imaginary soundtracks for romantic indie flicks involving real-life nerds, its vignettes innocent and honest and devoid of the twee market-capturing antics that make 20jazzfunkgreats think of butcher knives and bike chains. Her music soars with golden wings of synthetic romance in an ethereal, wonderfully sentimental space intersecting the neon balladry of the 1980s robotic soul movement. Or, if you want to simplify, Planningtorock with a BSc with honours in a STEM subject. This is the sort of music we fall in love to. " -20jazzfunkgreats

"Portable Morla just landed on our planet and offers us "the void that exists". A synthpop diamond in this garbage dump that is Earth. Never had the feeling that simplicity is a higher form of intelligence? Proof is here with this 8-bit manifesto about our modern civilization, aliens, technology, and art. Portable Morla wields delicate synth melodies, classy beats and a leading voice of a rare quality, to reach distant galaxies where unknown lifeforms deal with the same shit we kill ourselves over every day. The Void That Exists is part of an almost extinct species in the 21st century: Poetry." -The Darkest Love (France)

"Playing synths, drum machines, melodica, and various toys, Portable Morla creates tunes that sensually slither into earshot. She composes low-lit torch songs that slyly seduce rather than slap you upside the ass. Dub influences her production style, lending her songs a lo-fi, intimate spaciousness...Morla's beats are relatively gentle, which allows more room for her lush, sparkling electronic embellishments to blossom. Overall, Portable Morla's introverted brand of electronic-oriented songcraft bears a distinctive sound palette and vocal tenor that will linger long after the last song dissipates into the ether." -Dave Segal (The Stranger-Seattle)

"Portable Morla is a one-woman minimal electro-dub project emanating from outer space – or, more correctly, Seattle, Washington. As the cover art might suggest, however, The Void That Exists is one of those rare little pearls that successfully uses themes you might find in old school, kitschy sci-fi and translates them into the world we experience everyday right here on earth, and from an entirely unique perspective too." -[sic]Magazine
