A sensual concoction of spoken word poetry, ASMR erotica and tumescent ambient environments.

Perila, aka Russian-born, Berlin-based artist Alexandra Zakharenko crafts arresting sonic erotica on her debut album, Irer Dent.

Setting breathy readings of an erotic novel and a collection of poems against sensual synth backgrounds and amorous field recordings, Perila recasts ambient music as a space for desire and sexuality.

The album is the latest release from the Manchester-based label Sferic, home to Echium, Jake Muir and Space Afrika.
