GRAVITY - (physics) the force of attraction between all masses in the universe
"Gravity cannot be held responsible for people falling in love." - Albert Einstein
Two years after their debut MONSTERPROOF, Swiss electronica act DIVISION KENT (Andrea B.
& Sky Antinori) is back with GRAVITY.
The new album derives its name from a track created by a series of coincidences and accidents: a beat flying into a frenzy; a voice that dives abruptly one night; two song sketches coming together.
“GRAVITY is dark with colour”, is how Andrea B. describes the 11 songs. A fictional trip through a reality-scape melding cinematic moods and the stardust of pop culture. Moments before they blur from the urge to be everywhere and nowhere – sometimes “upbeat”, sometimes “zen”, but always completely lucid.
Where the first album largely emerged from the musical convergence on the corner of Division Avenue/Kent Avenue in industrialised Brooklyn, DIVISION KENT sought the collaboration of soul mates this time round to balance atmosphere, noise and the beauty of a melody. Legendary producer Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Interpol, Indochine, Nick Cave), a pioneer since the beginning of the 80s well known for his amalgamation of electronic music with guitar sounds and renowned musician, composer and producer Peter Scherer, who during the course of his career regularly surpassed genre borders and cooperated with experimental artists such as Laurie Anderson, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Montreal-based dance company O Vertigo.
