Vera Sola : New Album : Peacemaker

February 02, 2024

“I see this record as a sort of topography of memory”, she explains, “if one were to unroll the mind, and watch as the moments that coalesce into memories rise from the map into relief. It’s a collection of stories stitched together with that particular dreamlike quality which allows for disparate spaces to converge into a single scarcely knowable vastness.” She continues: “If my last album showed how people (and their ghosts) effect the environment, this one shows how the places we’ve been and lived, shape us. And how our memory shapes it all again.” - Vera Sola
