About

There will be no songs about empty streets and fear and loneliness. Together, we will be looking up to see the stars above the world that has stopped for a while.  

"Cosmic" is the first single from the upcoming project called Rupture that refers to the words of Arundhati Roy:  

"Our minds are still racing back and forth, longing for a return to “normality”, trying to stitch our future to our past and refusing to acknowledge the rupture. But the rupture exists. And in the midst of this terrible despair, it offers us a chance to rethink the doomsday machine we have built for ourselves. Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next."

In keeping with the times of rupture that require us to create our world anew, COSMIC is a diversion from Joanna Lero's typical sounds. Also, the lyrics, that up until now were a centre point in conveying a clear message, became blurry, sentences slowly become a tool to achieve certain sounds rather than conveying a particular meaning. 

COSMIC IS OUT ON THE 16TH OCTOBER 2020
