Angkorwat is a pop experiment by Niamh Corcoran, a classical musician who started at square one, composing basic melodies on her macbook keys.
from there took her new sound to new heights of skewed electro pop, not that Niamh abandoned her training all together . “A certain amount of traditionalism is useful if you know how to exploit it”.
influences include hidden histories, stendhal syndrome, cocteau twins, extreme moods, long wave radio atlantic 252, synesthesia, chicago/detroit, remorse, mothers, daughters.
