Two years after sophomore album Infinite Avenuehalf-Norwegian, half-Mexican singer-songwriter Carmen Villain (aka Carmen Maria Hillestad) announced the release of a new full-length. Both Lines Will Be Blue is out on July 12th via Smalltown Supersound and it is her first full instrumental album. “Observable Future” is the first excerpt.

I’ve been playing around with instrumentals for a long time, and it was something I wanted to do more with after I finished Infinite Avenue,” says Carmen. “Leaving out my voice and lyrics got me out of my own head a bit, which I needed. Working with sound is to me the ultimate meditation and is a more unconscious way of expressing whatever is going on inside.”
