Six years after her last record to date, Lilies, Belgian singer Melanie De Biasio returns with Il Viaggio, a new, ambitious record whose simultaneously intimate, conceptual, and experimental scope has never before been so self-assured and empowered. Presenting itself as a sort of autofictional travel diary in which the singer and composer interrogates the very notion of identity by intimately exploring her father’s Italian origins, Il Viaggio can be understood as a series of sonic short films mixing post-jazz, alternative rock, ambient, concrete, and new music into a sort of dreamlike, imaginary journey from Italy to the USA.


Conceived in close collaboration with producers Pascal Paulus and David Baron, Il Viaggio alternates between acousmatic, cinematic compositions pulsing with muted, heady grooves (“I’m Looking For,” “Chiesa”) and falsely-naive pop melodies switching from funereal to melancholic, and drifting off into dreamlike detours worthy of David Lynch (“Now Is Narrow,” “Mi Ricordo Di Te”). Whatever the context may be, Melanie De Biasio, with her sensual and ethereal voice, brings into being a weightless universe that is at once abstract, organic and on edge, diving into the most intimate depths of her history and psyche in order to bring to the surface snippets of universally accessible sonic imagery. © Stéphane Ollivier/Qobuz
