Taking listeners on a spiritual journey, this 10 track album is the sonic experience and interpretation of a dreamlike, ethereal world. Right from the very single ‘Breathe’ all the way through to most recent single and video ‘Youth’, you find yourself encased and entranced in another realm. Jozem drenches you in his atmospheric lyricism which is thick with poeticism, and soft, authentic introspection.
An acute blend of electronic production featuring layers of synth work, alongside dynamic vocal effects, Jozem also incorporates field recordings into his music. Thus showing an incomparable understanding of not only his environment but also of the art and direction which he wants to portray. Forever encapsulating a feeling, or a moment in time within his music, he instantly transports the listener on a unique and immersive journey like never before.
“In life, with all its noise and distractions, it is so easy to just keep going with the flow that you lose sight of your purpose and forget how you got to where you are.
Foreign is about being lost and getting to a juncture where you are forced to face yourself and the person you have become. You start questioning who you are and question the relationships with the people who you love. Foreign is about bravely sitting in those moments of uncertainty, letting yourself question the things that you've been conditioned into believing about yourself, who you should be, and how you present to the world.
For me, it is often in my sleepless nights where I am alone and cannot hide where I have these conversations with myself and am forced to reckon with the demons that haunt me. Ultimately it is in these moments where you really can face your truth and strive to align your being and your actions with who you truly are and want to be.”
