“Venus Years” is the second in a series of albums about DIVORCE from a child’s
perspective that started with “We Were Young When You Left Home” (Schole, 2019).
Coping with solitude, rediscovering structure, the significance of the new daily routine and regaining self-confidence are the key themes upon which the music is built.
The tracks “Love And Dust” and “Warhorses” exemplify the album’s conceptional narrative.
Guest appearances from Muriël Bostdorp and Tobias Leon Haecker reinforce the eclectic nature of the music.
Artwork duties are once more fulfilled by Alex Hanke (Zum Heimathafen). His depicture of little boy K as a warrior in a remote post-apocalyptic wasteland is a metaphor for determination set against deprivation and loss.
