Ismena - This Time
Dreamy, melancholic dark indie from the Netherlands.
Ismena proves that heavy is not always about a wall of distorted guitars. In this case, it can be found within the emotional depth of these songs. An emotional Spark that gives you goosebumps is precisely what This Time aims for.
With 'This Time' Ismena goes back to how she started as a singer-songwriter, which is in a small setting and mainly acoustic. Because many songs are recorded in the moment of emotion, it has become a very honest album. Ismena talks about heartbreak, depression, and insecurity, but also shows a lighter side. The album is a transition from her being someone who is dependent on others to an independent person who can manage on her own.
