Clara Moto first stepped into the spotlight with her stunning debut album 'Polyamour' on InFiné in 2010. Intimate and fragile, yet all the while joyful, witty and immediate, the album offered a fresh, intelligent and decidedly female take on the predominantly male genre of techno music and received wide-spread praise throughout the music press.
Now, three years later, Clara returns with her second full-length, an album that is every bit as close up and personal as her debut, but at the same time more intricate and thoughtful, more introspective and melancholic than its predecessor. 'Blue Distance' is named after a line from a poem by Sylvia Plath and circles around the theme of remoteness. It is inspired by Clara's own experience of frequent relocation and travel, but also by the distance that a musician feels
separating her from her listeners, and the constant longing – and ultimate impossibility – to bridge this gap with one's work.
An album that shows how much Clara Moto's artistic vision as well as her capabilities as a producer have matured since recording 'Polyamour'. 'Blue Distance' is a confident second album that is not afraid to gracefully defy expectations, and can be taken as a statement that Clara does not intend to play it safe in the years to come.
