Gone are the bright and wide open spaces of its predecessor, swapped for the dark, mysterious, often claustrophobic realms of the city and the underground spaces that offer dark illumination for the abstract fringes of society.
Written during a time of signifiant change, INSIDE found Ellen Sunde breaking free from her constraints. Having relocated to Berlin, that singular city of hedonism and unrest, she also spent significant time amid the bright lights of LA, where the arts district is less-pronounced but just as stimulating. Partly a document of the culture she embraced through this time (not a club record but certainly one shaped by that environment), the album is also about working through loneliness, discarding inhibitions to carve out a new way of making music, fully challenging herself in the process. Through its seven tracks, INSIDE bristles with both stark intimacy and a powerful sense of freedom, channeling the energy and state-of-mind of the club scene into something minimal and true to her own work.
