Isotropia | Post-Punk / Georgia / Mexico
Isotropia is a Post Punk band formed by Angel Kauff of Stockhaussen/ Frio y Vacio and Keren Batok ΨPsi/Red Sol. Collaboration between two artists began in 2016 from the songs Void and Parallel Locations both parts of the Stockhaussen's debut album Cold Lines .In 2017 Angel and Keren came up with the decision to start an independent project - Isotropia , for which Angel Kauff writes music, participates on vocals and mixing ,while Keren Batok works on lyrics / vocals and visuals . Their debut album ( label : Young and Cold Records ( Augsburg/ Germany ) ) Borderline Negation is conceptually based on the topic of Mental Disorders , Depression , Hysteria , Psychosis , Psychotic episodes , Mental breakdowns , BPD , NPD , Manic episodes , Anxiety , PTSD etc - struggles which this way or the other every individual has to face at least once during their life time . The album is very personal work for Keren at the time of working on which she herself was fighting Clinical Depression and GAD , but also it is a weapon and an act against social stigmas around the illnesses and those who tries to minimize battle which people with mental problems has to face daily . Album was released as a vinyl on August 2018 , the same year on October 28 they they released first single : " But , Are You The King ? " , followed by " Auto-da-fe Of The God " and "Seedbed" from EP : Spasms . Currently they are working on new materials .
Surprisingly , even after the collaborations and the projects they actively worked on through the years . they met for the first time during their first European Tour 2019 , which was very successful also due to their stage presence : when Angel Kauff is cold and distant , playing bass guitar , Keren delivers violent , almost brutal act , with sharp , sometimes shamanic moves and strong voice . Their shows were almost cathartic , mostly aimed to connect to audience on very subconscious levels .
Keren actively calls herself She-pope / Antipope and during her stage performances it became obvious that religion for the band is one of the main targets to destroy .
