»Polar Soft«, the debut album by Nuremberg based artist remeny seems like a message from other spheres. Or an unexpected signal from the bottom of the emotional ocean in each and everyone of us.
Eight songs are entering our safe spaces in a scary but calming way, balancing between the pain and relief that comes with confronting yourself with your own feelings. »I’m too intense, they say« – remeny is not only questioning social habits and revealing the harm they can cause, she is also leaving behind common technical rules of composing an album. Clear vocals, oblique instrumentals and highly sensual connected field recordings are taking us to a hypnotizing dream scape. remeny’s drawing her own map, bravely, while exploring an intimate but still unknown surrounding. »Polar Soft« is merging digital wilderness with tangible elements of nature. There are all kinds of instruments. There are sinister beats. But we also hear birds singing. Water falling. And tears.
What might seem like a wayward hybrid creature in between, turns out like a precisely tied web of well made decisions in music, words and design.
– Lisa Neher
