Roni Alter /// Let’s Go On The Runby David Pearl | 05.06.14
My feelings have always been connected to music. As a kid, I had a dream about music playing everywhere; coming out from huge speakers hanging from the skies all over the world; giving everyone the perfect soundtrack to their lives. But then I got my first set of headphones. Ever since this remarkable pairing, the connection between music and my emotions has grown deeper and more inseparable. I always find it hard to explain why music triggers specific areas in the heart, but this can be left unexplained as you let yourself feel every beat and note, collecting more and more songs that become your personal soundtrack to every smile and tear.
Roni Alter‘s music is the perfect addition to your personal soundtrack. If I could (outside of my dream world), I would play her on huge speakers all across the world. “Go Wild“ is her second solo album released earlier this year. After many years of collaborating with artists like Arik Einstein, Dudu Tassa and with Metropolin Project as the lead singer, she debuted her very appreciated solo Hebrew album, “Kis Avir”. Alter then moved to Paris where she wrote “Go Wild” entirely in English and entirely on her own.
Its 9 amazingly beautiful and heartbreaking songs, perfectly produced by Alon Lotringer (co-producer of her debut album), surround the strangeness she felt being in a new city, her longing for familiar feelings and places and the questions that appear in love. “Go Wild” is an album you’ll wish you had if ever left on a deserted island.
Watch the videos for “Let’s Go On The Run” and “Lazy” (directed by Roni & me). CATCH her live at “Tmuna Theater” on the 9th of June.
