Ambient/Jazz wizard SHADOWDREAM is proud to present the new long awaited album “Nostalgia” due for release on 21 05 2021 via Epictronic worldwide.
How come some people, myself included, sometimes feel nostalgia for the times past, but not those times of significant pleasure, but rather those of great pain? Is it maybe due to the illusion of having control, as when we dwell in those times past we know how they were, so they don’t intimidate us as much as the future ones, which are filled with anxiety and uncertainty? This album dives in exploration of rather personal psychological journey of nostalgia for the times of depression and anxiety, which now seem as the safe place, especially during the period of uncertainty during global pandemic. Having talked with therapists and their clients, many times this concept of, let’s call it “negative nostalgia”, arose. Therefore, it is only a natural thing for me to explore it through music and go back to that difficult period which now seems safe.
