Ruptured Album Release // INTERBELLUM // Dead Pets, Old Griefs

Interbellum – Dead Pets, Old Griefs [CD release, October 2018] 

Interbellum is the musical project of Lebanese singer-songwriter Karl Mattar. Formed in 2015, the project sees him working alongside multi-instrumentalist and producer Fadi Tabbal and other musicians from the Beirut music scene. Interbellum started as a lo-fi rock outfit and expanded into more left-field pop rock.

Dead Pets, Old Griefs (Ruptured, 2018) is the band’s second album and features 10 songs that revolve around themes of memory, time, childhood, and loss. Apocalyptic imagery – real, imagined and figurative – permeates the album, and the instrumentation follows suit, warping, distorting and folding on itself. The record plays like a broken music box, its kaleidoscopic melodic songs disjointed and smeared by noise, dissonance and processed sounds. Recorded in Tabbal’s Tunefork Studios, the album also features contributions by Marwan Tohme, Julia Sabra and Pascal Semerdjian from Postcards, as well as Camille Cabbabé from KŌZŌ.
