Mezi lopatky – songs about love, getting old and goodbyes
Kieslowski release their third album called Mezi lopatky. 'Urban folk', as Marie Kieslowski and David Pomahač call their work, completely captures their straightforward way of how to sing about relationship between two people. On this new album, Kieslowski step off of the songwriting lo-fi underground and not just thanks to the producer who happened to be Jan P. Muchow on this album. Breathtaking dynamics, original arrangements, delicate beats, wit, strong lyrics and great sound just proves that Kieslowski is a duo which is in harmony.
Original poetics and a view on a relationship between a man and a woman has always been the cornerstone of the entire production of Kieslowski. If someone thought they couldn’t go deeper to the marrow or that they had already used up this topic, they were certainly mistaken. Kieslowski are not reaching for knives anymore. They are not needed because they don’t solve much. Much more painful is separation, solitude, silence, sleeplessness or awareness of death. Kieslowski are reconciled with reality, without raising their voice or without fear. The record thus sounds less rugged than previous albums, but it is still very personal and a perceptive listener will definitely not get bored.
This of course is related to the overall sound of the album for which is responsible the producer of the album, Jan P. Muchow. The decision to entrust the delicate music of Kieslowski in his hands was definitely worth it. In early 2014, the entire team went to the north of France to an enclosed space to record the basic parts of the album. “The cooperation was very close and intensive. We were recording almost 14 days straight. After a while we all were on the same page and we all knew what we wanted. Honza also works very fast, so we had the opportunity to try multiple ways. When we weren’t sure we trusted his choice and sense.“ Says Marie Kieslowski and states whether it was necessary to travel to winter Normandy. “It was important that we left. The same thing could have happened anywhere else outside the country. But it’s true that Normandy is particularly good. That place, a stone house in the middle of nowhere, had a unique atmosphere. Not to mention that we were there in late January and early February, so most days it rained and the wind was strong. We were isolated and happy.“ When listening to the album, it is evident that the initial recording location seeps through the entire album to be finally presented in the song called Normandy.
Despite the chill of France or sometimes depressive themes of the lyrics, the songs of this album can bring joy too. Jan P. Muchow shares the enthusiasm of fans for the harmony of voices of David and Marie. "Duet in pop-music is for me a royal discipline and with Kieslowski I had the opportunity to work on the entire album for two voices. Also, both Marie and David have similar approach to creative work as I do – everything is allowed, the only limit is your imagination. So, it wasn’t work, but joy, to participate on the album."
On the third album, Kieslowski present a smart and sensitive author indie urban folk and join the most significant duos of our scene.
