[ The Partisan Seed = Filipe Miranda ]

Insomnia’ is the title of the fifth The Partisan Seed album. After a more solar turn with the previous album, the musician is now back to more obscure walks, materialized in an instrumentally simple and lirically darker piece. As usual, this album is a (almost) biographical summary, that this time led to a dip in an inner world, captured in sound, audible between light and shadow.
The album is released on April 7, 2017 and has the participation of Helena Resurreição (vocals) and Fátima Abreu Ferreira (photography). Recorded between Caminha, Esposende and Barcelona. Mixed by Marco Lima and Filipe Miranda at Hertzcontrol Studio and Casa del Sol.
