about

Accidental Forever. The title itself captures the alienation that soaks through the music here. It could be the title of a creepy 1980's sci-fi television program directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski for the BBC, to which this album could easily function as a soundtrack. The album's sound is a unique take on Coldwave, New Romantic and '90s Pop music, built from raw, strange textures and straightforward lyrics sung in an ornately accented English casting shadows of desperation. Listening to it feels at many moments like finding yourself in a new city, lost and unable to ask anyone for directions; at other moments like being trapped in a software demo run on Windows '95, which has been running for the last two decades, growing abandoned and decrepit. Suffused with isolation, it speaks to public spaces at once frictionless and oppressive, urban centers simultaneously hermetically modern and decaying, and to the claustrophobia of daily routine. It is music for life as a maze.
But while it can be quite gloomy, it is not pessimistic: the centerpiece of the album is the serene, simply beautiful instrumental “Entertain.”
