Feliu is the third album by Pigmento Music. Mix and master at Franz Suono by Franz Fabiano.
Sophomore slump and complicated third album syndrome. I had to lift up my expectations for Feliu.
The debut album The Grid Line took so many years to see the light at the end of the tunnel. it represented all my young years of songwriting and genuine efforts to find my style. it was about the small area where I grew up during the transition from childhood to adulthood.
The second album White Night Walks was like an earthquake. it was produced after a long series of misadventures and ended in glory and confidence. The songs were all about walking away from troubles and finding a way out from the blu to white. Some eps were released just before and after this second album, including a mostly instrumental ep called Antonyms for Confined Places, written and recorded during the covid 19 pandemic.
The third album was planned written and recorded in complete tranquillity. That’s what made Feliu a difficult third album. There were comfort zones to overcome and there was also a need to evolve. Some of the songs from Feliu were written a long time ago as for tradition in my albums but this time I know those were the last songs I shelved for so many years before taking them off the shelf.
