In March 2018, Sediment Bruise started recording their new album. Ideas rolling around for the past 2 years were then taking shape. Ideas that, for the first time, were the result of critical contribution of all the band’s members, rather than songs almost completely written and formed prior to recording. To be precise, at several occasions the initial idea was completely reformed in the end.
All the above gave birth to an almost concept album, both regarding its music and the themes emerging behind the lyrics.
Musically speaking, the sound of Sediment Bruise is still there. But with a lot of changes. Less loud guitars but a lot of different guitar sounds than before. Lots of clever synths and pianos, violin and cellos and of course the robust, though creatively reformative – regarding the final shaping of the songs- rhythm section. Last, but -as always- not least, the ethereal sound of vocals, combined with vocal harmonies made to fulfill the vision of the writers.
This album is all about uncertainties. Periods of our lives that we don’t know what comes next. Kicked-out of our thrones, not knowing what to do. Moments we feel we are nothing but an infinite small spot in a big universe of people and situations, having no control of anything at all.
Actually, this is what IN-BETWEEN is all about.
The gap in space and time between life and death,
the strange gap that emerges between two previously beloved people with no feelings left between them anymore,
the uncertainties that come when forming a family and leaving the security of your so well-programmed life as a single,
the gap between your routine and what is happening in the world around you, that in the end you don’t care about, because you have no time left to do so,
the uncertainty that arises when leaving the child inside you for the sake of becoming a well working machine
and so on…
So many changes, and all of us lost between infinite choices we have to make, helpless and alone.
This is IN-BETWEEN…
