Norwegian multi-instrumentalist SYLVAINE has announced new album details behind her Season of Mist debut. The album, titled ‘Wistful’, will be released by the label onMay 13 this year. Pre-orders for the album are now available across several CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.
SYLVAINE are streaming the first new song from ‘Wistful’. The track titled ‘Earthbound’ is streaming now at Stereogum.
Regarding ‘Earthbound’, SYLVAINE comments:
“”Earthbound” was the last song written for “Wistful” and has become one of my personal favorites off the record. I really wanted to uncover a more energetic and aggressive side of my sound for this track, but still keep the atmospheric and etheric side that has become a vital part of my expression. From a lyrical point of view, “Earthbound” portrays the struggle to adapt in this world, which pretty much sums up the concept of the whole album.”

Serving as the composer, recording engineer, producer and musician of all instruments herself, SYLVAINE composed her critically acclaimed debut ‘Silent Chamber, Noisy Heart’ only with the aid of British mixing engineer Nick Terry and Ray Staff for mastering at Air Studios (BLACK SABBATH, DAVID BOWIE, LED ZEPPELIN, and more). Her successful self-release enjoyed critical acclaim, and landed SYLVAINE a supporting slot for shoegazer’s ALCEST South American tour in September 2014.
SYLVAINE is the sole member of the project for the studio recordings, but will be joined by three other musicians to bring the music from her two albums alive on stage. The band is set to embark on their first tours in 2016 after the release of ‘Wistful’.
The recordings for SYLVAINE’s sophomore album were completed in the French Drudenhaus Studios in spring 2015. It was mixed and mastered by the same team as her first full-length during the fall and winter of last year.
