What is the best thing you can take away from a crisis? New insights, the courage to expand your creativity, breakthroughs that seemed impossible before? The Intersphere has experienced all this in the last three years and survived. And, indeed, from adversity, they have thrived.
A combination of immense self-confidence as songwriters and arrangers, combined with their impressive playing abilities, is demonstrated to full effect in “Wanderer,” their first new music since the world came to a standstill. In the lyrics on “Wanderer,” singer Christoph Hessler alternates between personal introspection and powerful socio-political observation.

“After our last albums Relations In The Unseen and The Grand Delusion, it is now time to set out on our own. We have to take things into our own hands and not just stand idly by while humanity, which has come a long way, now threatens to choke on its own pathological excesses. We need a merciless treatment of our own ambivalent behaviour, between foreign and self-determination, reflection, and the courage and imagination to escape our own inertia.”
