Empty streets, contact restrictions, breathing masks – a situation, we all would have considered completely absurd just a few months ago adds a new kind of dismalness to our daily life, which turns a sombre vision into some new normality. For a band whose inauguration falls into these times it’s a self-evidently influence on their artistic creation. Two days before the planned start of recording their debut album the world comes to a grinding halt with lockdowns implemented all over Europe. The married couple Ana Muhi (vocals, bass) and Sven Missullis (guitars, vocals, drums) moves into their own studio in March 2020. The raw energy, subtleness and fragility of the written songs gets pulled into a wake deeply influenced by the state of the outside world. Under circumstances and opportunities of a new level of concentration the tracks begin to form and create the artistic vision of MIGHT: a dichotomy between emotional safety and discomfort, between rage, despair and esperance. While the world discusses topics such as ‘Flatten The Curve’, MIGHT create their own sine wave built from emotional interferences and amplification between music and personal experience, resulting in music full of ethereal intensity. Several musical genres such as Black Metal, Doom and Sludge, PostRock and Shoegaze are incorporated. This all happens organic and natural, taking the focus away from pure effects towards an emotional efficiency: the power of love as an answer to questions relating to death and live as fragments thrown into the lyrics.
