Live artist Innellea releases the next phase of his multimedia storytelling art project and forthcoming 2024 album ‘The Belonging’ in the form of lyrical, guitar-rich single ‘Burning Out’ in collaboration with Juan Hansen, out now, accompanied by a live session video.
The diverse album also features collabs with luminaries including grime master Flowdan, CamelPhat, and Swedish indie composer/singer Karin Park, forming part of a shared ‘collective experienced catharsis’ encompassing singles/visual art/video/social media leading to the full debut album and an all-live tour (dates TBC) promising to bring ‘concert vibes into the club’.
Munich’s Innellea has specialised in big-scale conceptual projects like ‘Five Phases’ and ‘Distorted Youth’, as well as releasing on labels like Afterlife and Diynamic – he’s been a secret weapon in many a DJ’s set. The Belonging is his most ambitious and personal project yet, released on Distorted Youth in collaboration with [PIAS] Électronique. The previous single ‘Silence’ w/ Maurice Kaar introduced alienation and violence, now ‘Burning Out’ moves us closer to resolution and reconciliation.
‘Burning Out’: a lyrical piece, with Buenos Aires live multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Hansen supplying a melody with guitars, plangent and soulful with an acoustic feel, and his soft multi-tracked singing of the emotionally revealing lyrics adding to the heart-stirring synth chords with slowly building choral notes. The breakdown introduces a harder, faster section before the final part has guitars and voices harmonising, producing a feeling of increasing unity and progress as we journey together towards catharsis.
‘Burning Out’ is out now on Distorted Youth in collaboration with [PIAS] Électronique. Save it here: https://innellea.ffm.to/burningout
