BLACKOUT, riotmiloo's second album, represents a retreat from her political beginnings and a move towards exploring the inner self while retaining its predecessor's power and sense of struggle.
crushing analogue sounds and heightened emotions form the core of her new album. together, they create a visceral and raw sonic depiction of internal turmoil and aim to dismantle the artificial barriers between normality and madness, tearing down the notion of stigma. blurring the lines between internal and external incoming threats, riotmiloo weaves a web of inextricable layers of immersive textures and suffocating beats to draw the listener inside a world of urgency, confusion and paralysis. the extensive use of analogue synths and cold electronics creates a sombre electro mood with a splash of angst-pop.
at the same time, her vulnerable vocals are distilled into the listener's mind while showcasing the indomitable spirit that defines her. riotmiloo's thought-provoking lyrics and delivery invite the audience to explore questions many may shy away from while offering a glimpse into the depths of despair and the complexities of the human psyche. many questions are asked. many types of emotional collapses are painted in many shades of black. no glamour. no judgement. pure empathy. what happens when you lose touch with reality or feel so low that there is no way out? it is a testament to the transformative potential of music, reminding us of the connections that can be forged through the universal language of Sound.
when we suffer in silence, we think that we are alone, different, separate. when we share our stories of suffering, we find that we are the same.
