Playing God (2012)
Playing God was recorded between October 2011 and January 2012 and features 11 songs that are like musical stories; stories that are sometimes striking, sometimes quiet and full of tenderness and where there are always things to discover "between the lines". Some songs are much more intimate than many songs from the previous album and ISGAARD's vocals sound fragile, almost vulnerable and direct, whispering into the listener's ear.
"Sad or thoughtful themes often move me more than anything else", says ISGAARD and she transports this directly with her voice. But also other influences are new in ISGAARD's music. The 70s were perhaps the most important years for pop and rock music in general (according to Jens Lueck) and shaped the two musicians on their way. So there are always elements from this time on "PLAYING GOD". Ethno-, world music as well as avant-garde and classical influences are further ingredients, because both musicians despise borders in music. ISGAARD's voice also shows new facets, sometimes you can hear them in "unusually low registers", but this also suits the little woman with the great voice perfectly... best with headphones!
