Odd Beholder — Loneliness

Odd Beholder, the project of Zurich-based musician Daniela Weinmann, is about to release the full-length debut album "All Reality Is Virtual" this fall. The tenderly flowing track "Loneliness" is giving a first glimpse.

"Loneliness" is about being confronted with yourself, with your weaknesses, your lies, your truth. "When listening to the song, I saw a fighter in the desert," says Weinmann. "I was picturing the fighter, what was her weapon of choice? Flipping through the weapons was like choosing a game character, so I was also thinking of fight as a game, as a sport." Loneliness is a metaphor here for a number of things. Weinmann continues: "It can also be the insight that the game is rigged against you. Your enemy is embodied by the infrastructure, he doesn’t even needs to face you to win over you. That’s the loneliness of being subjected to structural power.

Odd Beholder have released two highly acclaimed EPs already, "Lighting" and "Atlas". Followed by the "Remixes" EP. Those remixes have been contributed by friends made along the way and artists Odd Beholder became fans of: The/Das, Fejká, Hundreds, Alessandro Giannelli, Kalipo, Thomas Atzmann. After having played tours in China, Germany, Switzerland and Italy, Daniela Weinmann teamed up with swiss musician and producer Martin Schenker to finish producing Odd Beholder's debut album. "All Reality Is Virtual" will be out Oct. 19th, 2018 on Sinnbus and Mouthwatering Records.
