Psy’Aviah... Since Yves Schelpe and Emélie Nicolai won Studio Brussel’s Demopoll in 2003, they have come a long way. The extremely danceable music of Psy’Aviah catches on more than just within the gothic scene, as their mix of electro-industrial, EBM and electro-rock also opens the doors to a broader public.
Singer Emélie Nicolai has left since 2013 and it took a while, but in 2017 Marieke Lightband took over the female vocal parts. All the while, Yves Schelpe has been firmly in control of the rudder, supported since 2011 by guitarist Ben Van de Cruys.
Since November 1st, 2019 the new Psy’Avia album ‘Soul Searching’ has been a fact! The standard CD version contains 12 tracks, 11 songs featuring each a different guest vocalist. Only one song ‘The Scientific Method’ has no guest vocals at all. The album contains a good alternation between danceable songs and more calm, somewhat psychedelic songs, which makes the choice of the album title more than suitable, I think.
For those who can’t get enough from Psy’Aviah there is also a deluxe edition available. This version contains a second CD, on which the fans are served another 16 remixes which are all certainly worth it.
Those who missed Psy'aviah live on November 16th this year in Antwerp will have to be patient, because their next performance will only be on February 27th, 2020, at Cabron, Antwerp.
