Shortly after releasing the title track of their upcoming album, Giolì and Assia return with another production in the shape of ‘Silence’. To coincide with the single’s release, the duo have also delivered a #DiesisLive, from the Fjallsarlon Glacier Lagoon in Iceland, both of which are available to stream now.
Apparently racking up millions of views around the world with the #DiesisLive series, which sees the duo perform in remote locations, they have filmed a series of chapters in possibly one of the world’s most beautiful countries.
Serving as a visual exploration of the album’s title ‘Fire, Hell & Holy Water’, the new setting is a stark contrast to the fiery forms in the dark, ashen landscape of the Fagradalsfjall volcano video, as the pair transform into white pure figures that echo their glacial surroundings.
Shot from the icy tongue of the lagoon, they give a raw and emotive performance of new single ‘Silence’ as well as premiering two tracks from their forthcoming album.
Giolì & Assia: “We spent 9 days here in Iceland! At the beginning this was just an impossible project even to think about, but after these 9 days we can finally say we moulded it into reality! We brought all our team here in Iceland, but more than a team they really are true friends and special people for us. They helped us make our dream possible with supporting our craziness every single day; without sleeping, eating, making long hikes, and putting in all their effort! Nothing was taken for granted!
“We toured most of Iceland, experiencing the most beautiful sunrises, colouring our eyes with joy after long runs, filling our lungs and souls breathing the purest air in the middle of huge canyons, drinking water from glaciers, and danced under the coldest rain and laid on greenest grass just simply looking at the stars! This trip really made an impact in our lives, and we’ll be always grateful for it! We chose the craziest, most remote, pure, raw and surreal locations to shoot all our new album videos! Let us say this, you’re not ready for it!!! You’re not ready for this album!”
Out now via Ultra Records, ‘Silence’ starts off with their melodic handpan, as Assia’s vocals lure listeners into the dreamy soundscape, before adding an ethereal minimalist drop.
