"prism"- So is the promising title of Rea Garvey third solo album. And not without reason. Conquered the charismatic Irishman far by emotional statements, the heart of the nation, he is now devoted to a subject that is as important to him: the inspection, waking up and getting up. The philosophy of "Prism" is a policy. One who deals with personal struggles and wrong - in terms of the age-old, universal language of Emotionen- and protest music.
And here we are at its deepest roots. Following a long musical tradition, Rea Garvey has cast a good look at the world around them and wrote an album with head and heart; with passionate songs that are in particular unbroken optimism shake.
A "prism" makes things visible that are invisible to the naked eye. It transforms, by means of dispersion of light, a single beam of light in a colorful spectrum of colors. If we imagine, this light beam is for us - the listeners, fOr whose emotions and divided into many colors, then you have arrived at "Prisma": ". This is not a recent thesis, but is a pragmatic intention Songs"Armour", "Fire", "Run For The Border", "Put Your Tools Down Boys"To draw attention to a fact: The world is in flames, and if things do not get better, then we have to be loud."
Confrontation. So the motto is on this album. Although Rea Garvey to maintain its positive attitude, he admonishes the sound becoming. He knows he is both victims and perpetrators and directed his words thus just as much to himself as well as to the outside world. You have probably succeed a little harder, because there are no lesser things as our freedom and well-being at stake. But although the songs to call to upgrade, they are no sermons. For Garvey is too much with the Oscar Wilde quote: familiar "Every saint has a past, every sinner a future". "If the name alone "Prism" has moved to think, I want that my music makes their remaining, "says Garvey. And in fact corresponds to the music all the lyrical content.
Although Rea Garvey is always open and ready to stretch out in different directions, he goes his own way on this album. Its roots are anchored in a musical tradition that is timeless in many ways. A fact that he is to emphasize stopped feeling, with this album.
produced by long-time companion and Garvey producer Andy Chatterley, back the dazzling synth sounds of "Can not Stand The Silence" and the acoustic instrumentation, as it was strongly represented at "Pride" in the background. Clear, rich electric guitars and a large, airy drum sound now help convey its current Message.
For the first time in his 15-year career, Rea Garvey has an album in his German homeland choice, Berlin recorded. The Predominant majority of shooting took place in the legendary Hansa Studios in Berlin - birthplace of some albums by the likes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Depeche Mode, Snow Patrol, Manic Street Preachers, U2 and many more. The corresponding albums made extensive use of the acoustics of this famous halls and also "Prism" is no exception in this respect.
Similar to the "prism" of the album title, the spectrum is placed on musical shades on display: The lyrical story of "Mockingbird"Is about obsession and confusion and is packaged in a package that is reminiscent of 60s R'n'B -. Distorted guitar and increasing horns What latter is scary and spooky sounding and combined with martial drums, also on"echo Me"(A torn self-reference of"Can not Stand The Silence"- Song lyrics, find themselves in a completely new musical context).
Although here danger lurks from the outside, is "I'm All About You"But rather an oasis of calm compared to the rather tempestuous lyrical themes with which" Prisma "apart-sets." I'll meet you at the fire escape if it all starts to burn, "Garvey promises in this sincere, very intimate ballad fOr a mistress.
But probably the most prominent element in the context of "prism" comes as a trio of one-take, semi-improvised songs "Out On The Western Plain "," Put Your Tools Down Boys "and "Way Going On"Therefore, as part of the most radical sound deviation Garvey's previous career paths they remember the acoustic blues of the Great Depression era of the United States. In fact," Out On The Western Plain "a Leadbelly via Rory Gallagher number and as such has a very personal Garvey himself says connection. "It's more of a celebration in honor of Gallagher, as a cover."
"Put Your Tools Down Boys" is a concise, musical call for joint action against an opponent you probably will not find. Although, technically speaking genre, a different direction from Garvey's usual modus operandi strikes, yet merge his concerns very harmonious form with many themes of the tougher tracks on "prism". "War", "Armour" and "Echo Me" - a wake-up call, a call for unity and what some called "the man" or "the system" denote love to defy; the shameful end of politics, business and religion. And that brings us back to the beginning, and what constitutes the head and heart of "Prism".
Parallel to his musical career, Garvey also uses humanitarian work, for which he receives high recognition. There are the impressions that he could collect on the extensive travel in this work, which also find expression on this album, in his music. By taking these observations as inspiration, Rea Garvey is the goal: "... the responsibility of a musician, over world events to report and to provide an answer to the charges, which were brought on behalf of peace." Here Garvey has a new form of expression for his artistic voice in "Prisma" found, and that is the most crucial aspect of this album.
As a consequence, one meets in an interview to a noticeable bedachteren Garvey, although his confidence remains unaffected. His summary of "Prism" is succinctly:
"This album is an extension of myself, my emotions, my state of mind, but it's just a statement - You are an individual and if you not happy you are with the world, then you do together and become noisy With this album I could. come under fire, I do not necessarily me yourself a favor pronouncing things that do not want to hear some people. But I feel prepared me well and am not afraid of a fight. "
Reflected and yet passionate uncompromising words. Garvey has a field character set and "Prism" is the ink. Help is at hand. The rest is up to you.
