Last Friday Dutch the band Lesoir released their fifth studio album Mosiac. The first reactions from both the media and the fans on the album are actually overwhelmingly positive! . The track Somebody Like You,
Strengthened by producer duo John Cornfield (Muse, Supergrass, Ben Howard and Robert Plant) and Paul Reeve (vocal producer of Matt Bellamy), Mosaic is shaped in a 10-day session at Airfield studio (St. Merryn, UK) by War Of the World guitarist Jo Partridge. With 10 years between the release of their debut album and this fifth full-length album, Lesoir say that Mosaic has become the album that finally defines them. The track Two Faces,
The band states, «Our lives are made up of various elements and parts; people, pets, work, our homes. They all have a color; a shape and they vary in size. It is up to us to make our lives into works of art, using all these parts and elements, to make the complete picture. At some point on our journey we realize that we alone are responsible for assembling these parts».
«As time moves forward, we are getting better and better at realizing what we have to do. We gradually learn the tricks of the trade, but also the rules of the game: what’s done is done, we cannot start from scratch, we start from exactly where we at this point in time, and build on these foundations, and continue to do so, and the process is ever evolving». Nice behind the scene footage of Lesoir in the studio (and at their homes) recording Mosaic!
«Lesoir enjoyed a successful five-week tour as special gues’ of the Polish band Riverside in the spring of 2019, which inspired a surge in creativity for them to write a new album. With this newfound inspiration, Lesoir decided to follow a slightly different path in shaping their new work of art. In the months that followed the tour with a lot of blood, sweat and tears, they worked on 9 new songs, and recorded them during the winter of 2019. The result is Mosaic, an emotional, little less angry offering than heard on previous albums, an open and honest record from Lesoir».
