Pallas Athene Is an ethereal alt-pop project created by Breanna Johnston. After spending nearly a decade playing in various rock and folk bands, in 2014 she injured her hands in a construction mishap and had to take an extended break from guitar in order to heal, a hiatus which led to an adventure in making electronic music.
According to Breanna, “Making this record on my own was a super dark and liberating process for me. I had to learn music production from the ground up, so this EP ended up taking me almost three years to complete. Because of my struggles with anxiety, sensory-processing and technological overwhelm, it felt natural to explore the themes of man vs machine and the dissolution of Self within these songs. This EP is a direct reflection of my feelings of isolation and restriction in both the physical and digital world.”
