On "Blood To Bone", her third studio album breaks, Gin Wigmore in entirely new sound regions: you can hear immediately how much of this "Blood" how much passion she has invested, your listeners, to offer us a completely different musical jaunt, a tour that primarily by the desire for a new sound, is characterized by fresh beats. even more depth and weight what her songs ultimately even more emphatically - because the 28-year-old New Zealander who lives in Los Angeles now, this time not only their rock and blues roots remains true, but the first time experimenting with electronic sounds gives.
Having already published with her 2009 debut album "Holy Smoke" had celebrated massive success, it was her inspired blues successor "Gravel Wine " (2011), the young Ms. Wigmore finally made the critics' darling. "My goal fOr 'Blood To Bone' it was now to capture a very specific sound, which is varied and just 'heavy'. So my mantra that I really had in every single song in mind was "so her comment.
"The album should be seen as acting as a springboard from which I could dip into the whole musical corners that were me previously unknown. That was a real challenge to see what I could do anything, and I came in the meantime even to a point where it almost felt like a self-imposed punishment -. but I had to go through just "
The recordings "Blood To Bone" found in her adopted home of Los Angeles instead, where Gin Wigmore collaborated with various songwriters, with among others Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Matt Corby Laurel Collective), the internationally renowned producer Stuart Crichton and Sweden Joakim Ahlund, the example had last year at Chrissie Hyndes (The Pretenders) late solo debut "Stockholm" cooperated.
Together with them, leaving the native New Zealander its ancestral terrain, and instead it uses pure desire to experiment, because much of what can be heard on this album, she does here for the first time: She plays the piano, presents her falsetto voice, taking care of the Background -Vocals and slips even in the role of co-producer of their LP. "Yes, to leave this ancestral comfort zone and to write songs, who just work quite differently, that was the core idea of this album. There were so many genres of music, for which I was not even really receptive before this work on album went off - it's almost as if my musical taste would have to get through this process entirely new receptors one can well be compared to a child who can not stand alone the idea of Brussels sprouts or mushrooms, but if you then slowly grow up.. is, we finally discovered these things for itself, it sometimes takes even the most delicious - just you just have to be ready for it, "says Wigmore.
"When I then with Stuart set to work, there was only one plan. We wanted to with the beat, start the Groove - and everything else should only then have their turn "No wonder then that the opening piece "New Rush" Instant Action comes when hard-hitting beats Wigmores unmistakable voice meeting. The piece was created during a side trip to London where gin With Charlie Andrew worked in the Iguana Studios.
"Charlie is just amazing, "says the New Zealander." He is a real specialist, a scientist in terms of combination of instruments and real oblique electronic effects which one it later sets. The experience with Charlie being in the studio, has asked all my musical approach on its head - and at the same time the pace set for this album, "says Wigmore furthermore, has "a lot of Portishead, Alt-J, Woodkid, Irma Thomas and Mos Def" heard his own words while she composed new songs and recorded.
"Just this groove, it was he who interested me; him I wanted to see and Ever first time to understand what is in these songs off what it is ultimately, the mind moved a and touches every single song I. fOr this album recorded, I tried to get closer to this essence and this thing to grab. and when I returned to Los Angeles was then, I have experimented a lot with my voice, was just as ethereal sounding background vocals recorded yet so worked a lot with falsetto that I did afterwards almost exclusively. I was just open Concerning this all new things, which is why the new album is truly experimental. "
On "Nothing To No One" it presents a gloomy pop design, with a touch of Soul on very subtle electro-elements meet, while in the case of "This Old Heart" a piano and looming gin directs our attention to the past and about muses, through difficult phases and keep going. "The songs are inspired by different things," she knows to report "and some of them relate very directly to my life, my experiences, while others are more metaphorical."
"Sometimes I manage to process personal experiences immediately, so after writing directly about it, but there are also situations where had enough grass must be grown over the matter until I can because I dare Ever." Their first single "Written In The Water" was at the very last moment when the rest of the album was as good as in the case; the result is the perfect combination of Sixties-inspired desire and electronically here and now. "Good for me, the song feels like a piece that also from my last album 'Gravel Wine ' would come can. We eventually just 'Fuck' said - we do that now just because it feels right. I fully support this mix of light and dark, like down around this sub-bass and the blatant Beat dominate and above this bevel, sweet backing vocals lifts and everything can melt away. "
Wigmore took quite a few years ago to Los Angeles, after she had lived through an extremely unsightly separation phase in Australia. She has since found a new partner - Jason Butler, Letlive the singer of post-hardcore band. - And negotiates on "Blood To Bone" now both: past events and also the good feeling that you are the new relationship. "Meanwhile, it's really getting back super, but when that time everything went around me to pieces, it was really hard to let the matter behind me and not to lose faith that it go me again sometime well could" reported it.
"I do not know exactly how it's for me going on", sets Wigmore to when you talk to them conclusively on its plans after returning with the new album. "What I know is that I had to do exactly this album exactly at this point in my life. It just had to get out, so I can take the next chapter of my life in attack. I know now that I all am ready fOr what I got involved - and that gives me a good feeling. "
