Sonya Balchandani of veteran NYC band The Big Sleep will release her solo debut as Warmyear, titled I Wear the Memory, that will be out September 1. The name Warmyear comes from a story by the late science fiction author Ursula K. Le Guin about a world where the seasons are so long, there are warmyears and coldyears, and the album is inspired by her as well, exploring "different ways of being." She made much of the album with little Casio keyboard and Garageband

The first single from the album is "Eliza," a rippling, dreamy synthpop track where she sings "Voices, strong as the trees / Loud as the sea, wild and free / Echoes hang in the air / All I can hear surrounding me." We've got the premiere of the animated video for "Eliza" and you can watch that, and check out the artwork and tracklist, below.
