Biblo's new album, 'Absence', to be released on November 24th 2014 on the c.sides Label, is certainly not a matter of lightness. It's a spellbinding, enchanted journey that begins in a rift that opened in Turkey shortly before the Gezi protests evolved, and travels deep to sift the edges of human unrest and personal unfastening.
Recorded amidst the political and social turmoil, 'Absence' is, to say it with Biblo's own words, "about the absence of desire, absence of roots, absence of meaning, absence of justice."
About the video:
"For me, biblo's Absence is not just about the outer political world but its impact on the personal level. I wanted the video to be part of this emotional chaos. Confusing and breathless. Watching and being watched. Eerie yet so familiar. Like the album's artwork I wanted to explore these textures in biblo's music, her beautiful haunted voice and the surge of emotions that make this release so unsettling."
