Carmen Villain set to release her third album via Smalltown Supersound

Carmen Villain announces her third album, Both Lines Will Be Blue, out July 12th via Smalltown Supersound.

US-born, Norwegian-Mexican artist Carmen Villain has announced the release of her third album, Both Lines Will Be Blue, out July 12th via Smalltown Supersound.

The new record follows Sleeper released in 2013 and 2017’s Infinite Avenue, it’s also her first fully instrumental project.

I’ve been playing around with instrumentals for a long time, and it was something I wanted to do more with after I finished Infinite Avenue,” says Carmen. “Leaving out my voice and lyrics got me out of my own head a bit, which I needed. Working with sound is to me the ultimate meditation and is a more unconscious way of expressing whatever is going on inside.”

The music incorporates field recordings, synths, piano, drum-programming, zither and modular sounds. The soothing flute sounds you’ll hear throughout the album comes courtesy of Chilean-Norwegian musician Johanna Scheie Orellana.

Inspired by Ana Mendieta’s art ‘Type’, is the latest track to surface from the album.
