There’s a new album from Innellea in the works called The Belonging, and you can get a first taste of what’s to come with “Silence.”
There’s something extra special brewing in the studio of melodic house & techno master Innellea, and it goes by the name of The Belonging. Come February 9, on Innellea’s personal imprint Distorted Youth in collaboration with [PIAS] Électronique, his brand new album and live tour project will fully materialize, and he’s not going it alone. This project has called on the expertise of some of the most popular artists in the industry, including Monolink and CamelPhat, while reaching outside the box with the help of indie singer/songwriter Karin Park, MC/producer Flowdan, composer Juan Hansen, and more who have yet to be announced.
This weekend, the veil was lifted on the first single of The Belonging. The offering is called “Silence,” and its message is everything but. Maurice Karr lends his vocals to the track, and as the scene opens, listeners are met with a jarring narrative before a wave of powerful instrumentals enters the fray. After examining the stunning music video that accompanied the release, it’s easy to conclude that this song reflects the dark internal struggle that leads to angst and depression, intertwining with external relationships as we silently beg to be seen and heard.
Before you press play on the visual media, Innellea would like you to pay close attention to a few things. He asks, “Can you find yourself in this video? What narrative elements do you notice, and can you identify any metaphors?” As you mull over your feelings, Marco Fumolo, the music video director, jumps in to express his thoughts, “I believe that we can all relate to the experience of losing ourselves due to external pressures and not being accepted for who we truly are. I hope that one day this will cease, even though the world often shows us something different.“
Check out the music video for “Silence” on YouTube, grab your copy of the track on your favorite music platform, and pre-save The Belonging before its release on February 9. Let us know if you resonated with the message on X (formerly Twitter)!
