On September 29th, ChiaraOscuro will release the album Rancor:Succor via Nefarious Industries. Joining Nefarious Industries was a pivotal moment for the artist and her project. The singer praises label head Greg Meisenberg for his unwavering support and encouragement.

Chiara skillfully weaves a tapestry of refined and raw vocal sounds, adding depth and contrast to her compositions. One of the recording locations for Rancor:Succor also plays a vital role in the album’s distinctive sound: The TANK, the renowned 7-story steel water tank turned recording space in rural Colorado.

ChiaraOscuro remarks on her upcoming LP:

“Ever since I learned about The TANK, I was intrigued and knew I wanted to record there. I also knew that I wanted to record a song there with my ‘drone-ified’ accordion”

Reflecting on the pandemic’s impact on her creative process, ChiaraOscuro shares: “A lot of my music deals with the shadow and all of the feelings that normally don’t get talked about and that otherwise wouldn’t have a place to go, other than the refuge of art.” Look out for the album drop next month, and find more information about the artist HERE.
