THE MOOD BEHIND THE CONCEPT
Hiraeth is a welsh word which has no cognate in English – the Portuguese ‘saudade’ or the german ‘Sehnsucht’ is somewhat similar to it: it’s a feeling of homesick without a home. If we subtract home from both side of the equation all what’s left is a constant, nostalgic yearning for lost places, illusory past and a sense of departure. Iamyank’s first full length project withdraws from today’s overstimulated and desensitized society, escapes the City Of Nobody in exchange for the lowest layer of Home. Breath in, submerge into the deepest depths – and feel safe again.
