Earmilk claims it “is simply on a different wavelength … chilling and seductive”. Surrija is an Electro art pop project that plays with asymmetry, glitch, and electronic treatment of her roots in folk and classical training. She spent 4 years developing the record, a feral departure from her previous work as Jane Lui, her given name. It’s tactile and off-kilter. Released April 2020, the album features Matt Chamberlain (David Bowie, Perfume Genius, Fiona Apple), produced by Surrija, Sophocles, & Maxwell Gualtieri.
Surrija has worked with Son Lux, Matt Chamberlain, Tom Brosseau, Felicia Day, Kate Earl, Kina Grannis, with contributions featured on the soundtrack of Everything Everywhere All At Once. She was arranger and cast member of Cambodian Rock Band by Lauren Yee (Off-Broadway Signature Theatre 2020, La Jolla Playhouse 2019, OSF 2019), composer for All’s Well That Ends Well (OSF 2019) and Secret In The Wings (Coeurage Theatre 2017).
