Hydrogen Sea’s new Symbiosis EP is a beguiling tale of four brand new songs, including a re-release of ‘End Up’—a track first released on Hydrogen Sea’s Court the Dark EP (2014)—which is now the soundtrack for ‘Black-out’, a new primetime fiction series on Belgian television, Eén.
Revisiting their duo universe, Symbiosis EP is a search for re-connection with the natural world, conjured up by Birsen’s enchanting voice and Pj’s sumptuous pianoplay.
Forced to physically distance themselves from other human beings during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Pj and Birsen created the Symbiosis EP in duo at home. Solely equipped with Birsen’s voice and Pj’s piano, it allowed them to return to writing songs the way they did when they first started creating music together.
The result is an EP filled with five gorgeous and unapologetically minimalistic tracks, founded on solid piano compositions and enchanting storytelling. Each song is inspired by the long walks out into nature Birsen and Pj went on, as a way to try and dispel their budding feelings of loneliness and alienation in these unprecedented times of lockdown isolation.
