“New Light is about trying to see things in a new way when everything feels upside down and confusing. To me, the song also feels open somehow, both musically, sonically and lyrically. Especially when Gary’s guitar comes in after the two first verses I feel like a new opening of light and dreams is happening, which really fits with the whole idea of the song.” – says Pia.

Having played and written music for most of her life and always played in bands a solo project was been brewing in Pia’s mind for a long time until she started her solo endeavour in 2021. Her debut album Distorted Chants was released in 2022 followed by the ep Burning Time early 2024, both on Italian label Argonauta Records.

Her solo music is rooted in slow heavy drones but also has a lighter, dreamy and hopeful side. Her riffs are slow, heavy and minimalistic and her vocals dreamy and haunting.

On the new album Pia has worked more with layers of vocal harmonies and has given an old dark sounding nylon acoustic guitar more space in her massive distorted soundscape. In addition to singing she plays bass, riff guitars and mini- malistic guitar leads while Gary Arce (Yawning Man, Fatso Jetson, Big Scenic Nowhere, Ten East etc) plays additional guitar melodies on six of the album’s eight songs. The drums are played by Ole Teigen (Superlynx etc) who also record- ed, mixed and produced the album with Pia co-producing at Crowtown Recordings.

Pia’s lyrics are always personal and honest. She wrote Dissolve at a time where a lot of major things in her own life, but also in the world, changed, were uncertain and seemed to dis- solve. Dissolvement is a recurring theme in the songs, but so is the idea of moulding things back together in a new form. As Pia often writes what she needs to hear herself, and needs to tell her- self, in her lyrics she wonders if there are others out there needing to hear similar things. On this album she is trying to create hope that no matter how scary major changes and the unknown is it can also be an opportunity for new and better ways and ideas.

In addition to her solo project Pia has spent a decade playing bass and doing vocals in heavy psych band Superlynx and recently started the new project SoftSun with Gary Arce and Dan Joeright (Earth Moon Earth, The Rentals etc).
