Info zu Shadows Are Made of Light Too
Edinburgh-based (via Greece) alt-pop artist Katherine Aly has been championed for her genre-defying by the likes of The Skinny, Tenement TV and Vogue Italia since releasing her debut single in 2019. Katherine describes her music as "alt-pop soundtrack of anthropology", while writing from a personal perspective on the human condition, time, mental health, sexuality and global concerns. Having been born and raised in Greece, there is something of an eastern influence to her sound and approach to music as she moves from electronic pop to sweeping ballads to dramatic pop-rock. "The message of my songs as a whole is all about embracing diversity, collective pain and trauma and turning them into empowerment," says Katherine. "Shadows Are Made Of Light Too amplifies my motto, which is the encouragement to 'dance with your shadow', meaning embracing our dark side and using it as a driving force and inspiration. In this album, everyday stories of vulnerability are given agency through songs made for everyone - including myself - to dance our troubles away." "Katherine Aly is a unique talent....combining beautiful melodies, unusual phrasing and multi-part harmonies, she creates dreamy landscapes with a confident alt-pop sound...we predict a bright future." - Scotland On Sunday. "..influences such as London Grammar, Lana Del Rey, Florence and the Machine and Bjork, Aly continues to explore the realms of alt-pop with confidence and a great deal of promise." (Tenement TV)
"The Edinburgh alt-pop queen had quite a task to accomplish with her debut album; naturally her biggest release to date; but she has blown me sideways, coming through with a valiant and phenomenally devoted effort, undoubtedly cementing her as a hot new sensation in the Scottish scene, if she isn’t considered as such already." (Jason Small, smallmusicscene.com)
