Maria Brink (In This Moment) Is Thinking About Working On A Solo Album

Maria Brink (In This Moment) was recently interviewed by Metal Hammer, and revealed that she is thinking about working on a solo album. If she does end up recording one, she says it will focus on “more of the obscure, intimate, quiet side of [her].”

Brink said the following when asked about her plans for 2018:

“I’m actually thinking, for the first time, of doing a solo album. I’m starting to slowly write, no hard plans. I’m not exactly sure when I’m gonna do it, but it’ll be more of the obscure, intimate, quiet side of me. Probably the only drums in it would be tribal drums and probably no distorted guitars. Just the softer side of me. That’s who I am. Chris [Howorth] would not want to do an obscure, artistic, dreamscaping album. That’s not who he is.”

She added that her solo performances would not have as many theatrics, saying “it would be just [her] and a piano and one dress and candles all over the whole stage.”

She also said the following when asked if the idea frightens her at all:

“It doesn’t frighten me, it sounds amazing. I love change. I’m a Sagittarius and I love adventure and new beginnings. New experiences because it makes me feel like I’m living. When I play piano by myself and sing, something really special happens. I connect to something that I love. My favorite moment in our In This Moment set is when I go out by myself to play a song on the piano. That would be me being able to do that for a whole intimate set, and I think it would fill my soul.”
