“Babylon” is the latest single/video to be released from Sweden’s Normandie. The track is taken from the forthcoming stunning album, “Dark & Beautiful Secrets”, due out February 19th on Easy Life Records.
“Babylon wasn’t supposed to happen”, says singer Philip Strand. “With the covid restrictions, it landed us more time to dive into the studio again and play around with new ideas. The song came purely from just having fun and playing around using breaths and coughs as instruments”.
He continues: “I’ve been searching for my identity my entire life. Going from group to group, crowd to crowd, trying to fit in – finally, I realised that my true identity is something I should form myself”. “Are you following or falling out” is a line I wanted to use to express the way many of these groups behave. You’re either in or out. To me, identity is what you get when you mix all the things you identify with, bits and pieces that then become you as whole”.
