Another Side Of Sadness is the new single from Sollein.
Andy Clarke, known primarily for fronting death/doom act The Crawling, had already revealed details of his new solo project Sollein.
Clark states, «I think I have reached that age, that happens to most I guess, where you question the very point of being; an existential crisis of sorts. Another Side Of Sadness explores my view of the world when I look at people, and what brings joy. We are puppets, our happiness controlled by others, and whilst many may disagree; the point I’m making is – does it matter?».
«I sometimes find myself filled with creativity, but no outlet. There are many ideas and emotions i feel need translated into music, but often isn’t achievable in a full band set up».
«For this reason i began Sollein ; writing music without boundaries, no constrictions i usually feel compelled to impose on myself. I have introduced synth, multiple guitars, clean vocal over-laced with a black metal delivery. The result has been an emotive, depressive listen. This makes me happy».
«There are those that matter, and only they understand the gravity of my silence».
