NOTES
Voyage Voyage, the iconic ‘80s hit, first sung by Desireless, travels down a fresh route, courtesy of New York based singer / songwriter, Eliane Amherd.

Amherd, a Swiss transplant, who has spent her career crafting a signature sound that reflects her bossa nova soul, coupled with New York grit, not only sings and plays guitar— but also produces and arranges. What we get is glissant vocals nestled between lush but minimal layers of guitars, bass, and beats. The track harnesses the talents of such New York music scene mainstays as Rosa Avila on drums, Amanda Ruzza (bass), and legendary percussionist, Bashiri Johnson who conjures shimmery accents.

The accompanying video, created by Onome Ekeh of Futurezoo, opens up into a dreamscape of ancient symbols colliding with modern day angst, and whimsy— into flowering mandalas of subconscious activity. The musical traveler finds themselves in an unexpected playground.
