object blue has announced a new audio-visual EP ‘Grotto’, which will be released on TT label on March 5.
object blue released her debut EP ‘Do you plan to end a siege?’ on TT label back in 2018.
The EP release will be accompanied by a live show creatively directed by object blue and her wife Natalia Podgórska.
The first single, ‘Opened Close’, was also released this week. It’s a dramatic, declarative single that bends and stretches time and melodic space to its own dimensions.
Speaking on ‘Grotto’, object blue has said, “‘Grotto’ is a stage. It’s not a soundtrack to an existing play, but whilst creating it I was thinking about the space we move in, the characters we play, the dialogues that happen. ‘Grotto’ is a bit like if ‘King Lear’ had been a millennial soap opera with a happy ending; it’s me sublimating my difficult relationship with the home. I could only envision ‘Procession of Healers’ because I survived this weird drama and I can look at it from a distance, as I am happy now. I come to this theme time and time again, but especially now because we’ve all been quarantined in our homes, and we’ve experienced the erosion of spacial boundary in our lives.”
