ORT017 : Maris / On Gods and Other Things

On Gods and other Things is the debut album by Maris. It’s the solo project of Belgian singer Mariske Broeckmeyer currently based in Brussels and New-York.
She spent  half a year in Iceland where this album was created.

« My head tends to forrest itself with questions.
Wonder derived from observations on this world.
Intrigued by our timeless need for Gods and Things.
Creating tiny universes
In which their relationship shifts constantly.
A whisper-shout of little question songs,
guided by a rille, that´s only there by accident.
Or is it not? »
