Marie Wilhelmine Anders – Travels (Broque, brq136)

Our Thursday selection:
Marie Wilhelmine Anders – Travels (Broque, brq136)
Following on „Andersworld“ and its remixes, Marie Wilhelmine Anders dedicates her new EP „Travels“ to her distinctive mixture of storytelling as well as virtuosic use of vocals and instruments and pours all of it into a highly atmospheric club sound.

While Marie continues the themes of her previous releases, with Robert Louis Stevenson’s poetry being a strong and omnipresent influence once again, the epic tracks on „Travels“ deviate in several ways from the previous album. Right at the surface, one is immediately caught by the ubiquitous 4/4 bass drum, which lends the album its distinctly club-compatible character, that is supported equally by a deep and atmospheric production, which is carried by melodic
chords and Marie‘s trademark vocals.

Marie’s narratives are inspired by Thomas Lutz‘ photographs and process topics such as travel, movement and change, and are given ample time to unfold. While „Andersworld“ was bubbling over with ideas, which came together in quick succession, the four epic pieces on „Travels“ develop their individual ideas into unique mini-dramas over 9-12 minutes each. This is far from creating a vacuum but creates ample space for a dense atmosphere, depth and a subtle play with various influences. That way, a track can evolve from a dubby balea- ric ambient piece into an emotional and energetic trance track, as „The Infinite Shining Heavens“ impressively demonstrates.
„Travels“ is at the same time a consistent continuation of Marie‘s oeuvre as well as a departure onto new territory, which raises hopes to be able to listen to Marie‘s tracks on the dancefloor sometime soon.
