The new installment of Sigmund Wilder comes from the hand of four producers of the international elite. On August 31, the people of Barcelona will publish Olympia, an EP with 4 songs from their latest full-length Disorder, seen through the eyes of producers Tim Palmer (David Bowie, U2, Pearl Jam, etc.), Steve Lyon (The Cure , Depeche Mode, Paradise Lost, etc), Sean Beavan (Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Guns N Roses, etc) and Paul Corkett (The Cure, Placebo, Biffy Clyro, etc). Olympia is the release with which Sigmund Wilder celebrates their fifth anniversary as a band.
The songs that are recorded on this album show the particular way of understanding Wilder's sound, located at the opposite end of what is commercial, what works, what works: what he does is, on the contrary, a kind of unstable magma of pulsations and glows, with melodic traces and blurred textures, pursuing a serene, spiritual, almost ascetic expression. All those languages and influences from which he drew dialogue on this record, creating new, different and highly evolved sound organisms.
The idea that drives this album refers us to one of the crucial attributes of music, and it is its inexhaustible capacity to generate moods that protect us at all times. Its meaning remains in the hands of lovers of electronic music, beyond the dance floor and all hedonism.
