Today, US-born, Norwegian-Mexican artist Carmen Villain shares “Type” the second single from her new, instrumental album, Both Lines Will Be Blue, out July 12th via Smalltown Supersound. The track is accompanied by a visual by Norwegian artist Solveig Lønseth.
Villain describes the inspiration behind “Type” : “I was very inspired by Ana Mendieta’s art (still am!), and was especially moved by her video performance art at the time. For example her Silueta series, or her powerful Blood Sign/Body Tracks.. The films were spinning around my mind while making this song. After putting down a rough version of it, I had Johanna to come in and gave her free rein to improvise on top, before I finished arranging it.”
