Julia Kent has announced her new album “Asperities” with an evocative video for “Invitation to the Voyage”. Directed by Carmen Jiménez who Julia worked with on the award winning short film “Oasis”.
As the title suggests, “Asperities” is a record born of conflict: internal, personal and global. Universal themes. The build of pressure and the threat of violent release. Modern guilt. Modern fears. “I was thinking about the concept of difficulty,” Julia explains, “Whether in life or in nature – of conflict, of being troubled. The idea of friction. In geology, an asperity is some part of a faultline that doesn’t move which can create an earthquake, which is quite an evocative concept.”
“Asperities” is released October 30th via Leaf Label.
