Aussie Electro Pop Sensation White Prism Does Ace Hotel Residency

White Prism, née Johanna Cranitch, is an Aussie by birth, but her angular electro pop stylings and angular look seem to owe something to the post-Millennial Euro scenes that produced the likes of Ladytron and Miss Kittin. She started her journey with the support of her jazz pianist grandfather back in the homeland, but she now calls BKNY her home—having already done time as an engineer for Nola Recording Studios, as well as having toured with The Cranberries.

Now crystalized as White Prism, her recently released and cleverly titled debut album Open Heart Job lures with exceedingly infectious synth confections like “Shake You Off”, “Hungry Heart” and “Patience” (with its distinct echoes of Madonna’s “Into The Groove”).

This month, she’s bringing her delicious dreamscapes and celestial cadences to NYC’s Ace Hotel, with a regular Sunday residency throughout April.
