“These are changing times: sad times but times that are also filled with hope. And I felt like this changing world required a different position from me, another way of relating to it.

Auto-tune, plugins and copy-paste have become the norm. ” führt sie aus. “I wanted to hear my voice the way that it sounds in my head. Whenever we used effects it’s because we felt that they had a place there, a story to contribute to, not as an unconscious automatic next step. I wanted to hear on this record that I’m not all soft but that I have a raw side to me as well. It’s a side that I call on and question and that I need to learn to accept. I’ve noticed that by being more accepting of myself, I become less judgmental when it comes to other people. We’re only people. And I would very much like for us to see each other like that again. Just see each other, period.

Soon I realised that writing an album in solitude – like I usually work – started to feel hypocritical, and that playing shows at venues with great PA systems and the perfect sound and lights couldn’t feel more different from how I normally write my music” says Chantal about the process of creating ‘Bounce Back’.

This album is my ode to connection, contact and consciousness.”Chantal Acda
