about

Olivia Pedroli’s fourth album, A Thin Line, was recorded and produced in Reykjavik by Icelander Valgeir Sigurðsson (Björk, CocoRosie, Bonnie Prince Billy, Feist…), as was her previous album, The Den (2010). Driven by a desire to deepen their collaboration and to probe into the groove between classical, folk and experimental music, A Thin Line was developed in several stages, and navigates the fine line between our own dualities and contradictions. The album is inspired by those particular moments, when doubt meets certainty, when everything seems clear, yet nothing is definite. Her arrangements blend voices, strings, piano and electronic textures, sometimes inviting in wind instruments or a musical saw, to explore different types of emotions.

Blurring the boundaries, scoring a new horizon.
