Interview with CLAIRVAL and Annelies Tanghe (aka And Then Came Fall) on their version of “No More Heroes” | Psy’Aviah Rediscovered

I discovered CLAIRVAL through friends of mine of the Facebook group BMA (Belgium Music Addicts), and I was instantly in love with the combination of intricate songwriting they had – taking their time, a slow pace to build up momentum and atmosphere. I was blown away by their cover of U2’s ‘Where the streets have no name’: six minutes long, but it grabbed my attention from beginning to end. The pacing, sound design and beautiful vocals of Annelies Tanghe who they often work with really made me follow them more closely, and as such, I couldn’t resist asking them for this project! Below is a talk about the project, and their awesome version of our original song “No More Heroes”. Read More …

Interview with MADIL HARDIS on her version of “Lost At Sea” | Psy’Aviah Rediscovered

Madil Hardis combines classical and electronic elements with ethereal vocals and can be described as deep and soulful Weltschmerz music, sometimes slow, sometimes faster but always full of intensity and emotion.
Her most popular releases include the singles Slow Kill and Summers Lost. And lately with tracks like ‘Carry Me Away’ and ‘Make Up For Lost Time’. We sat down with Madil Hardis, who I discovered through Sounds & Shadows (thanks Ken Magerman), and I immediately thought: “wow, this is unlike something I ever heard before”. Such a voice, such production! For the 20th Anniversary covers Madil picked the song “Lost At Sea”, the reasons for, she explains below in an interview and short video! Read More …

Interview with DIGITAL FACTOR on their version of “Lessons From The Past” | Psy’Aviah Rediscovered

We had a chat with MIKE of Digital Factor, a name that can not be overlooked. They were one of the first electro acts from East Germany to get a record deal after the wall came down. The band was formed out of an insane enthusiasm for synthesizers and electronic music, which is present to this day. In 1994 Digital Factor released their first EP on a Danish label, soon after thgat they got signed by Hyperium / Hypnobeat. Since then Digital Factor worked passionately to evolve their sound, craft it and present it live on various tours. They covered “Lessons From The Past” from our album “Seven Sorrows, Seven Stars”.

About “Tired” & why we remade it for “Bittersweet” | Psy’Aviah Rediscovered | A brief story about a wolf in sheep’s clothing

When writing “Bittersweet” we set out a vision, to tell a story, to be honest about emotions. “Bittersweet” is the end of a trilogy that started with “Lightflare” – which was an album themed around the “cry for help” and “feeling lost in the world”. Read More …

On the ways of “Entertainment Industries”: The Gameshow

In 2009 I wrote an album called “Entertainment Industries”, it was critical of how we viewed the world from inside our television & media input – without critical thought. A few years later I saw “The Gameshow” by UK illusionist Derren Brown – it confirmed a lot, it ticked a lot of boxes…”

The song “Entertainment Industries” touches on these subject I talk in the blog – pointing to our own individual responsibility and the responsibility media has. But the album carries the same name for a reason: songs like “WTF”, “Animal X”, “Freedomkiller”, “Good vs. Evil”, “Grace” and even the more flirty “Voltage” carry the same messages in more dissected ways.
