“Liquid Lines” takes on two different forms. There is a regular 10-track digital album on streaming services, whereas the physical album is a 20 track/two disk affair: each LP or CD functioning as an entirely different version of the album with regards to lyrics, instrumentation, grooves, collaboration partners, or even language. It makes for a listening experience that is quite unique: Immersing oneself in the dreamlike variations of these songs as the two women are emphasizing, obscuring or replacing certain elements, oftentimes actually veering off into something completely new and unexpected. That’s how Fama and Anna-Lucia would like this album to be understood – as a reflection on the liquid lines of demarcation of what constitutes a song. And – in the grander scheme – the infinite possibilities that constitute art and life itself. The “Liquid Lines” of tweaking and amending, bending and adjusting, of thinking, unthinking, and rethinking the same thing.
“Liquid Lines” was nominated for the German Jazz Award in the category Best Debut Album in 2021.
