Eerie Wanda is back with a new single and a new album. “Sail To The Silver Sun” adds a bit more gravitas and weight behind the Dutch/Croatian’s vaporous psych pop leanings. The dark piano keys and horns are somewhat reminiscent of The Flaming Lips’ Soft Bulletin era. According to Tadic, new album Internal Radio, due out September 23, explores more melancholic sentiments than the free-spirited reverie pervasive on previous Eerie Wanda material.
“The mystery of life and death is often on my mind,” she has said about the new album. “Sail To The Silver Sun” is inspired by her fascination with paranormal activity brought on by near-death experiences. She told 3voor12:
“On Youtube, you can see people explaining in video exactly how this works. My uncle also had such an experience. He had gone into a coma from a heart attack, was then pronounced clinically dead. But when he was resuscitated he was able to recount how he had been sitting in the corner of the room, looking down on his own body. People experience this more often: you zoom out and become aware of everything around you, and at the same time, you have the idea that you are coming home somewhere. I’ve found that fascinating during the course of my life: the mysteries of the universe. I always float above everything else, but that gives me a lot of inspiration too.”
Internal Radio was produced by Kramer (The Butthole Surfers, Low) and also features contributions by her partner and fellow Kidbug-member Adam Harding.
