After a few months of a delay due to having to embrace an almost fully remote way of working, our third EP 'Redeem' is out now! Like many musicians, due to Covid we were forced to work almost entirely virtually while creating this release. We decided to use this restriction to our advantage though, and cast a global net when trying to find a guest vocalist for the EP. By fortune, we found Russia based vocalist Julia Nem, who did a fantastic job at bringing our vocals to life and taking the music to the next level. With Julia in Russia, and Ciaran and Steffen in Amsterdam and Ireland, respectively, this EP was a completely cross-European effort!
To give some context - this is a concept album. The EP is inspired by the process of finding purpose and meaning in one's life, overcoming the struggles we face, and finding acceptance and redemption of our own soul. In life you have a choice to go into corruption or go towards redemption. With the choice of redemption you are forgiven, you refuse chaos and turn your back on corruption. You are again part of the whole, you are working for the greater good for humanity, and not self-centred. You over your own greed, selfishness, and lust, and find yourself again in a place of beauty, oneness and strong emotional and mental health. You strive towards positivity and creative construction.
The lyrics and music initially are dark and represent feelings of abandonment and loss, followed by realising that life is a thing of beauty, next feeling your soul is taken over by the greatness of the universe and life, and lastly achieving redemption whereby we leave or corruption to die and embrace our soul.
We are really excited to release this EP and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Steffen and Ciaran.
