Loss, transmutation and rebirth. To start anew and bury the old. Solve et coagula. The first word that was on my mind when I started with the new album was 𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒂𝒈𝒆. Big word. What does it mean though? To go against something more powerful than yourself, believing that’s the right thing to do, and that your ‘right’ is the most righteous; to contend, to amplify every emotion, exacerbate every woe and throw oneself into the havoc, the opposition, and try to conquer, to bend the iron? Amid these ruminations, some things happened, like they do in life, and I didn’t feel courageous all of a sudden. Weary of the pounding machinery that had carried me into music, I found myself in the middle of more silence than ever before, and I embraced it. The definition of courage is always so masculine, but in fact it took me much more courage to decrease the elements, to bring the boil to a simmer; to bare more. And behold an influx of peculiar sceneries of odd beauty of letting go. Ashes Indigo is about leaving in golden glow, with extraterrestrial ashes oscillating in the air.
Am I making ethereal apocalyptic folk music now? You can find out if you pre-order my new album, which is released Nov 25th via Cold Transmission. Today is of course Bandcamp Friday, so it’s a great way to get it there. The links to the album and Ashes Indigo video are below. https://linktr.ee/bedlessbones
