About Andromeda

Here comes one of the few requiems in rock history so far, composed in the vein of David Lynch writing about Calamity Jane who meets up with Boris Vian to watch an old Walt Disney Movie in a drive-in cinema. 

After the sudden death of my much beloved husband Christophe Badoux, the Comic Artist, I struggled for two years for the return of my voice, which had fallen silent from grief and shock. During this time I discovered music from various genres that dealt with the subject of death and at some point decided to write a requiem herself. During research my voice gradually came back to enwrap my grief in music, in a dark fairytale-like manner.   

With a non-religious approach me and my band expanded our «brute folk» into a cinematic experiment and packed the result into a double album. Inspired by classical works, the 18 tracks offer a modern interpretation of this heritage. The recording pairs analog band sound, choirs and stereophony with dark gadgetry of small synth sounds or Moog sub bass attacks. While the lyrics point into space, ghosts and animals populate nebulous sceneries that lead into an unknown world, vocals drifting from near to far. For the first time, we released two Swiss German tracks on a record.
