Ismena is a melancholic indie artist located in the Netherlands. With dreamy, melancholic songs treating death, society and the point of our existence, she tries to hold a mirror to the audience and make them think.
She writes and performs a lot on her own but also has a band with whom she has released her debut album ‘Until We Part’.
After the release of 3 singles throughout the year, the time has come for Dutch singer-songwriter ‘Ismena’ to release her new album ‘This Time’. The album was recorded and mixed at her home in collaboration with Ivy van der Veer and mastered by Erwin Hermsen (Toneshed). It’s her first release on vinyl through Electric Spark Records.
With ‘This Time’ Ismena goes back to how she started as a singer-songwriter, which is in a small setting and mainly acoustic. Because many songs are recorded in the moment of emotion, it has become a very honest album. Ismena talks about heartbreak, depression and insecurity, but also shows a lighter side. The album is a transition from her being someone who is dependent on others to an independent person who can manage on her own.
