Madeline Kenney Releases EP called Summer Quarter

January 22, 2021 10:06 am

On the heels of the release of her critically acclaimed album Sucker’s Lunch, Madeline Kenney returns today with a a glimmering and experimental EP titled Summer Quarter.

The EP is also Kenney’s first album that is completely self-produced. With touring cancelled following the release of Sucker’s Lunch, Kenney shifted focus to conducting a study of new sonic interests and experimental production, a rare opportunity that could only present itself as time slowed down.

The digital album is out now, along with limited-edition prints and a music video for “Wasted Time” shot at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley.

“In making this music video, something inherently hands on and collaborative, I wanted to make the process not only safe and comfortable for dancers amidst a pandemic, but also celebratory of their talents and a venue for them to move/ create/ express themselves in a way they may have not gotten the chance to do in a long time. We were super lucky to get let into the Greek Theatre to film, and using the drone made it easier to shoot the dancers safely. Wasted Time is about making art and finding the process of selling that art to be the thing that kills it, and how hard it can be to create under duress and urgency. The dancers seemed to fully embrace that theme and run with it, and I wanted the video to show them running (or improvising) with it.”
