Transistor Girl started work on Righteous - Sinner in 2015, fresh from a forty-date tour. The group was fuelled by the experiences, encounters and exchanges with other musicians during its time on the road, all of which would have a strong influence on this new album. There is a new, authentic energy as the group explores its world, allowing it to take shape organically: no agenda, no specific objectives, just good vibes. “We didn’t decide to make a more electric album, it just happened that way, from one gig to the next. We just kept things spontaneous, it was something we had in us, for sure,” the duo explains. Backed by the Geneva-based producer Yvan Bing, Transistor Girl departs from its earlier, stripped-back, contemplative sound with tracks that are perhaps more direct. In the search for this new mood, the group has broadened its horizons and looked outwards, collaborating with producer Christophe Calpini, Michael Flüry (trombonist with Sophie Hunger) and Alberto Malo on the drums, among others.
