Don’t be fooled by a name that hints at quiet spaces and acoustic guitar melodies: Diane Coffee is the gender-bending alter ego of Shaun Fleming, formerly a child voice actor, then actor, then skateboarder, then live drummer for Foxygen until he went fully solo in 2013. He started with hazily retro indie rock that, in the eight years since his debut EP and the few albums since, has evolved into the sounds on 2019’s Internet Arms—definitively pop-sensible and synth-driven and inspired by an apparent existential crisis: “It’s a personal study on how I feel about living with constant blurred lines of the self and the projected self.” Its loose premise—Diane Coffee trapped in a digital world, enslaved by AI—was, according to press materials, “born from the fear and uncertainty of a future in which humankind is both dependent on and poisoned by technology.” by Leilani Polk
