After the release of 2016’s ‘When Shall This Bright Day Begin’, Jozef Van

Wissem returns to Consouling Sounds for the follow-up album ‘Nobody

Living Can Ever Make Me Turn Back’.

The album is inspired by a Vanitas painting by the Belgian artist Cindy

Wright, which is also the cover of the album. This inspiration is beautifully reflected in the music of the album: Jozef Van Wissem’s lute arrangements sound fragile, his sparse vocals delicate, as if the vanity, the temporality and senselessness of everything has been rendered audible.

Each song title refers to the painting, making each track a memento mori on its own. This is counterbalanced by the strong and deep sound of the album.

‘Nobody Living Can Ever Make Me Turn Back’ might very well be the purest yet deepest and most full sounding Van Wissem album to date.
