Vanbot - Collide
Vanbot announces a new album inspired by the Trans-Siberian Railway, the longest railway in the world that crosses Siberia.
Last spring, Ester Ideskog, along with by producer / mixer Johannes Berglund and Petter Winnberg, had a 17 days trip from Moscow to Beijing. During this ride the artist wrote and recorded her 3rd album on board of the Transsiberian, a project that was a dream for her for years.
The album is scheduled for April 7, but Vanbot shares a first single, "Collide (Krasnoyarsk)." Led by an electro rhythm, the piece incorporates spacious and brooding undertones. Highlighted with an electro-noir shade of color, Vanbot knows how to add ethereal authority around the edges to its pop structure.
“Collide (Krasnoyarsk)” was written after four days on the Trans-Siberian Railway, traveling through the deepest parts of Siberia. The temperature was just above zero, it was raining and we were passing through small villages and old industrial communities. It describes the collisions and the attractions in relationships, and having no choice but to accept the raw and un-retouched feelings. You know, it’s like the poem of David Jones: “It’s both a blessing and a curse to feel everything so very deeply”.
