Gina ÉtéIm Rhy
ABOUT THE RELEASE
Gina Été‘s first song Mauern recorded in San Francisco polarised Europe: Blogs and Radios from Portugal to France up until Czech Republic have discussed the impulsive song, its political statement and the impressive video turned at the boarders of Mexico.
Surprisingly, the withdrawn intimacy of Gina‘s second single Im Rhy hits even harder: An unheard honesty about doubts, confusion and regret of the chosen path, carried by an unbelievably powerful surge of sound make the listener drift off to their own past.
Just as unique as the song is the video clip: Barbara Steinitz (illustrator, Berlin) and Peter Bräunig (Blende39, Magdeburg) filmed a shadow play of paper puppets. A paper girl alone in a sinister, eerie city, standing on a bridge. She leans over the handrail to stare into the dark water, then climbs up and jumps – into the light and colorfoul memories of her own past. One believes to recognize Europes highest dome, as well as Basel‘s rocking ferry boats and fish formed swimming bags as autobiographic allusions to Gina’s past?
Shortly after the release Été returns with her viola and mostly political songs in four languages to stages in Germany, Switzerland and France.The long awaited EP Oak Tree she will finally release in June on the Zurich based label Lauter.
