Are You OK? 03:19


"Are You OK?" is the second single off the upcoming second album "Bad Vibes In Mushroom Forest" by Jana Sotzko aka Point No Point.

“Bad Vibes In Mushroom Forest” is the second official solo album by Berlin-based musician Jana Sotzko. While the debut “Drift” (2019) sounded like an introverted inventory of a state of ambiguity and aimlessness, Bad Vibes takes clearer directions: it moves into the forest, under the microscope, on the deck of the research ship. While a bit of melancholy and doubt remain anyway, curiosity and a joy in the fantastic prevail and translate into jazz-influenced experimental pop songs as a form of confused energy.

The 9 songs form a cohesive soundscape that on the one hand expresses connection with nature, on the other hand is interspersed with traces of memory and remnants of technology and in its density is more soothing than repulsive. Folklore and mysticism are present in many song titles and lyrics and are interwoven with the everyday, almost banal, to form psychedelic collages - for the first time also partly in German. “Hoch leben die Moneren” is influenced by minimal music as much as by Krautrock and tells of a seemingly senseless research trip on the ocean. “Museum der Angst” describes the old (nightmarish) dream of being locked alone in a natural history museum at night. Despite everything, there is also consolation: the moon is only the sun in drag and anyway, death has seen enough for today (“Birthdays”).

The album was first written and recorded by Jana Sotzko in Berlin and Geneva and - like “Drift” - then completed in Pristina/ Kosovo and in a Kosovar mountain hut in collaboration with local producer Dritero Nikqi. On their third collaboration, they shared once again their enthusiasm for herbaceous synth jams, jazz rhythms and small-scale cinematic soundscapes.

Jana lives and works (mostly) in her hometown of Berlin. She has been active in the musical underground for two decades and has played in numerous bands (including Soft Grid, Dropout Patrol, Halfsilks). As a freelance composer she works for the dance and theater scene.
