One of the most captivating re-inventions of an artist in the last decade. ELIZA returns with a bold new LP titled A Sky Without Stars, which, in the face of a multitude of problems in the world, invites us to look up, gain perspective, and remember the important things in life.
The title came because she wanted to point at the reality of the skies, and that we never get to see the stars in London or any city in the world. We are shrouded under a self-oppressive veil of light pollution. This, she feels, could be one of the major sources of many of the world’s problems – a fracture in our relationship with nature, which makes us lose sight of our place in the universe, and our infinitesimally small size within it.
In tones as smooth as honey, she draws us in and delves into the darkness. And drawing on the sonics of the 70s, songs are laden with a wool-warm and satin-soft sound, lending them a feel that is at once sullen, saturnine, sensual and seductive.
The LP calls us to look up at the sky and make way for the stars.
