Pia Isa is the solo project of bassist/vocalist Pia Isaksen from Norwegian heavy psych/doom band Superlynx. She is now gearing up for the release of her debut solo album »Distorted Chants«, which features Ole Teigen (Superlynx) on drums and a guest apperance by guitarist Gary Arce (Yawning Man, Big Scenic Nowhere) on three of the songs.

Having played and written music for most of her life a solo album has been brewing in Pia’s mind for a long time. Finally everything has aligned for her first one to materialize and »Distorted Chants« was the result of that. As much as she loves playing with Superlynx (formed 2013) and other people her ideas for this album seemed more right to work through on her own.

Pia’s music is rooted in slow heavy drones but also has a lighter, dreamy and hopeful side. She is inspired by massive soundscapes, heavy psych, meditative moods, desert vibes and Eastern scales as well as her Nordic coastal surroundings. Superlynx-listeners may recognize her slow, heavy and minimalistic riffs and haunting sometimes chanting voice.

Pia has an open mind to a lot of different music. Not caring about fitting to any genres but channeling honest and heartfelt music in her own way. The lyrics on »Distorted Chants« are deeply personal and stretches from the very inner self and throughout nature.

Words and music by Pia Isaksen. Guitars, bass and vocals by Pia Isaksen. Drums by Ole Teigen. Additional guitars on »Follow the Sun«, »Trauma« and »No Straight Line« by Gary Arce. Recorded and mixed by Ole Teigen at Crowtown Recordings. Gary Arce’s guitars recorded by Mario Lalli.

»Distorted Chants« is out on all digital platforms on March 25, 2022, with a Vinyl and CD release to follow via Argonauta Records soon.
