Isabelle Pabst brews mini-thrillers in the guise of pop songs. She tells stories about women and sings about their secrets. Exactly on the dark corners of their truths the flashlight is held here musically and decisively looked into the psychological abysses and discord of the characters. The songs tell of liberation, of parting and ultimately of coming to terms with one's own life. Pabst sits on the edge of your bed at 4:00 in the morning. Gently but firmly she takes you by the hand and leads you through an amusement park of states. Except it's underwater, and there's a trapdoor in every carousel that pulls you down into the depths. Down there, the bass billows and makes you dance with the question marks. Somewhere a piano cries in the dark. Synthesizers, music boxes and a
voice. Hildegard Knef meets Einstürzende Neubauten, dry beats and Slavic folk rhythms. After two records with her band Tired Eyes Kingdom, the Cologne-based musician now presents her solo debut and delivers
delivers Weird Chanson, Broken Word and Psycholore.

"Isabelle Pabst has succeeded in creating an impressive and peculiar work - peculiar in a double sense, because it is just her own way, I don't know any other that sounds like this; and it is also peculiar in a beautiful way, how the record moves between song, drone, spoken (or better whispered) word, beats and whatever else meanders through the stereo spectrum, similar to a river." - Hans Nieswandt
