Most of the songs on the album were written during the first weeks after I arrived in Berlin, while some were written in Haifa, in my old apartment. I wrote one in the shade of a tree by the Euphrates, in moments filled with feelings of arrival and departure, distortion and clarity, doubt and certainty.While recording, we wanted to keep that live feeling to the songs, of something unfixed, dynamic, performative, raw. It’s rock – theatrical, intimate, with distorted metaphors and scenes wrapped in lucid lyrics. It’s a journey, and it’s a desert.”
The event will be held in English – with a reading in German, Hebrew, Kurdish, English and Arabic.
