“Persephone Nimbus was just an ordinary woman living an ordinary life, with a promising job at Eternity Incorporated.


Until one day she was kidnapped by the Plutocracy.


There she reigned for 6 months of the year, a sad cold queen of the dark webbed world …


But for 6 months of the year she was allowed to ascend to the Overworld with its marvellous technological illusions. And it’s towers that pierced the very sky …


But on the first day of every autumn she must take the long staircase back down, down into the Plutocracy, with their frozen lakes and above them, a sky of iron.”


Steve Kilbey

“Steve Kilbey & Martin Kennedy follow up their acclaimed album Jupiter 13 with the epic The Strange Life of Persephone Nimbus, a sprawling Pink Floyd-ish concept album that shimmers with darkly beautiful musical undercurrents, oblique lyrics and spooky spoken word pieces. It is the second chapter of an eventual trilogy.

The album was recorded in Tasmania overlooking the ocean, peaceful and crystal calm one day, dark and stormy the next, a dynamic that inevitably worked its way into the music and lyrics.

Returning to the mixing desk is Simon Polinski (Paul Kelly, The Church, David Bridie, Stephen Cummings, Underground Lovers) who skillfully brings the story of Persephone Nimbus to life.”
