Leif Vollebekk On the Synesthesia Of His New Album ‘Twin Solitude’

With his stream of consciousness approach to lyricism, Montreal singer-songwriter Leif Vollebekk edges closer to a conversationalist than a true songster. A self-described graduate of the Bob Dylan School of Songwriting, Vollebekk latches onto phrases the way poets turn over language. On his second record, meaning has more to do with feeling than any true message. After releasing his debut album North Americana in 2013, Vollebekk returns with Twin Solitude, a project that sits at the nexus of color and mood. He useTs shades—like yellow or gold—to discuss his latest songs, which integrate indie-folk with a touch of jazz. The album exudes a meditative joy best encapsulated in pigments rather than overly exacting prose. [Full article available on Village Voice.]
