The Aquatic Museum Album

The Aquatic Museum Album invites the listener to explore the mysteries of undiscovered, aquatic realms and draws inspiration from acclaimed artists such as Sufjan Stevens, Emiliana Torrini, and Agnes Obel. Produced by the acclaimed Luxembourgish sound engineer Charles Stoltz, this album is an exploration of the mysteries of the deep sea, with each track featuring lush orchestral textures, intricate arrangements, ambient drones, and extended atmospheres with pop-inspired elements. Strings, horns, electronic instruments, grand choirs, playful piano parts and captivating guitar riffs create a sound that evokes the grandeur of the chambers of the sea and conjures up the song titles’ metaphors.
