Soap&Skin

‘From Gas to Solid / you are my friend’ is the third album from Anja Plaschg, the woman known as Soap&Skin, and her first in six years. There are reasons for her retreat and search for a safer haven, given the preceding intense sequence of events – almost instantaneous acclaim and fame in her native Austria and across mainland Europe leading to intrusive media attention and battling expectations while protecting her integrity; then parenthood, and then beginning a new record, while the world outside continues to alienate and melt down. If Anja’s search for shelter has created something of a restorative oasis, a more balanced adult view than the rawer, angrier aspects of her earlier work, the stunning, wide-reaching ‘From Gas to Solid...’ still reflects the struggle to find meaning, answers, and a place to survive.
