Venus Blake’s debut album “The Other Side of Midnight”, a look into the heart of the modern day Outsider

London, UK – Venus Blake’s debut album “The Other Side of Midnight” is an intimate look into the heart of the modern day Outsider, capturing the alienation, melancholy, solitude and angst of the artist, living in a world gone mad, and facing their demons with a devil on one shoulder, the muses on the other. Love, loss, heartbreak, melancholy, alienation, addiction, isolation but also hope, ecstasy, the devotion to beauty and the hidden magic of life come together to make a harrowingly honest and intimate look into the darkest corners of the soul. Venus Blake’s intense vocals, expressive mastery of the piano, and dark lyrics front and centre on this voyage through the Other Side of Midnight. Notable for its dark cinematic quality and exploration of themes of tragic romance, sadness, tragic, glamor, and melancholia.

Recorded in a bohemian attic lost out in the Italian countryside, “The Other Side of Midnight” harks back to the golden age of singer-songwriters of the 70s (Carole King, Elton John, Billy Joel, Phil Collins) and of the 90s (Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Fiona Apple). The dark, minimalist productions by Lex Mars create a haunting atmosphere, while Venus Blake combines her piano magic with powerhouse vocals and a gift for capturing the essence of emotion in her words and music.

 

Venus Blake is a 24 year old British singer-songwriter and pianist. A classically trained pianist, she has been writing her own songs since the age of nine. As Venus says “Singer-songwriters are like modern day troubadours, wandering around the world, and writing our songs about the highs and lows of the human condition, we’re like the chroniclers of humanity, recording our own deepest experiences, thoughts and emotions and crystallising moments and feelings into four minute songs.”

Ordo ab chao, beauty out of darkness, is Venus Blake’s artistic philosophy, and her debut album “The Other Side of Midnight” while dark, dramatic and brooding, gives us the strength to rise above it all, as it deeply touches the heart, and tears through the highs and lows of what it means to be human.
