“Blue Marble” is the first single from “WE”, the new album by Laura Masotto, out on 7K! Records on June 11th 2021.
“Blue Marble” is an evocative, powerful and emotional string-based track, born one morning towards the end of the first national lockdown.
“I felt the energy in the notes I was playing, in the strength of the blow strokes, music was shaking me inside. It was born out of the desire to scream, the need to breathe, the urge to dance, the need to live as the spring outside blossomed.” Laura Masotto
With “WE” Laura Masotto conveys her own realisations about what she has discovered to be truly important. That is, us, all of us, for better or for worse, WE as humans are the most important things in our lives. The album contains several layers, which reflect the dualism which is contained in existence: life and death, water and fire, love and pain, present and past, the conflicting sense of human nature and its mystery.
