Listen to ‘Meg Skullfogworker’ below.

Quantum Natives’ latest idiosyncratic release germinates from the teeming mind of Yem Gel.

NettleHelix’s featured and fantastically-titled sample track ‘Meg Skullfogworker’ firmly roots itself in a verdant virtuality, where weeds are a cyborgian mashup of roots and wires and iridescent mosses ripple along confused and toxic terrains.

The track explores similar stylistic and conceptual realms to Joanna Pope’s recent Fantasias for Lock-In as it reflects on ecological catastrophe, looming futures and everything awe-inspiring and unknown about nature inextricably linked to the digital.

NettleHelix will be released on December 22. See the artwork below.
