Rohn – Lederman “All The Things Left For Dead Go Unsaid (aka “The River”) is the 3rd EP featuring a song of the acclaimed “Venus Chariot” album [#1 for 3 weeks in the DAC Charts] out on COP International. It features Remixes by Warren Harrison, GW Childs IV, and Emileigh Rohn [Chiasm] herself.
“The River” is one of the key moments of Venus Chariot: a beautiful and sad ballad. Rohn’s fragile and emotional vocal delivery is beautifully counterbalanced by Jean-Marc‘s music. He creates a stark canvas that allows the listener to experience every nuance of her exceptional voice. It is rare for artists to create enough space to let all elements really shine. Sometimes the note that is not played is the most important one. Jean-Marc’s musical mastery gives the whole record an incredibly intimate feeling. Like you just walked into a studio when the record button is on. Lyrically “The River” reveals a struggle that is not unfamiliar. Says Emileigh: I am comfortable in my sadness. It is a companion, steady at times, turbulent in others. It surrounds me, nourishes me, allows me to distinguish the joy I seek, tugs, and whispers, “Yes, we are alive”.
“So here’s to all the darkened things that we keep locked inside.”
