suggestioni musicali a cura di raffaello russo
Flemish composer Kevin Imbrechts, the artist at the helm of Illuminine, deftly blends neo-classical with post-rock influences.
“Fright” is the fourth and last single release off the upcoming album “#3” (release: Nov 2nd) and features Hannah Corinne, an American singer living in Iceland, whose voice reminds of the young Hope Sandoval. The wonderful new music video for the single was shot in the lava fields close to Reykjavik in cooperation with Icelandic dancer Ragnheiður Freyja.
The album was mixed by Birgir Jón Birgisson (Björk, Sigur Rós, Sólstafir) at Sigur Ròs’ studio Sundlaugin (Damien Rice, Jon Hopkins, Of Monsters And Men, Sóley and many more). Previous work of Illuminine has attracted comparisons to Nils Frahm, Bon Iver and Ólafur Arnalds. Further singles were featured by Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie.
The album is mostly a therapeutical one since Kevin Imbrechts aka Illuminine hustled with Asperger diagnosis and anxiety disorder. On 2nd of november there will be an associated album-length movie.
