Sylvaine release the first new song and the music video for the song called “Abeyance” from the forthcoming album ”Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”!

Sylvaine released the first magical new song of her forthcoming new album ”Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”, which will be released on November 2nd, 2018, via Season of Mist Records.

Statement of the musician about the new song:

“Abeyance” is one of the most diverse and uplifting tracks on ”Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”. The drums provided by Stéphane ”Neige” Paut, who also composed the bass line for the song, create a groovy backdrop for a grave message embedded in the music, of humanity’s cruelty towards itself, as well as the inner decay and struggle we face within our human form. The video of ‘Abeyance’ tells a story of being restricted, held away from what once was and being unable to fight it. The feeling of watching the world and self-unravel, without having the means to change it, being held in abeyance.”

A strong duality between worlds. A balance between the beautiful and the harsh, serenity and chaos, between an outside and an inner world, between our human life and the spiritual origins.

Norwegian multi-instrumentalist  Sylvaine deals with the extreme range of emotions this human existence has to offer, as a result of being in constant conflict with oneself and struggling to adapt to this place we call our own. The project serves as an emotional catharsis for the artist, revealing the eternal longing for something more residing within its melodies, capturing the feeling of being trapped and restraint by the human form.

After a year of playing selected, successful concerts around Europe together with her live band, like the European tour with Austrian post-metal outfit Harakiri For The Sky and a headlining tour in Russia/Ukraine tour,  once again Sylvaine entered the renown Drudenhaus Studio in France during autumn 2017 to start the recording of her new creation, “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”. Together with recording and mixing engineer Benoît Roux and her two session musicians, Stephen Shepard and Stéphane “Neige” Paut (Alcest),  Sylvaine pushes the duality between beautiful and extreme even further on her third album, bringing the concept behind the project to new heights. The album was mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker) at Atomic Garden in San Francisco (US).

Still serving as the sole composer of both music and lyrics, producer and musician of most instruments herself, Sylvaine takes the sound of her sophomore album “Wistful” (2016) and develops it into a more mature and contrasted form on “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”, all while trying to communicate the essence of her project, which remains the same as always before.

Now enter the cold and icy world of “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”, and let yourself be enveloped by its pressing despair.
