On NOT ABOUT HEROES, the haunting yet hopeful new album from the Berlin-based quartet AZOLIA, the words of WWI-era British poet Wilfred Owen are woven into rich tapestries of stark anti-war sentiment and urgent optimism. NOT ABOUT HEROES takes its title from the self-penned introduction to Wilfred Owen's 1920 collection Poems, which sets out a kind of mission statement for his work. Despite the tragedy of Owen’s experiences and the darkness of much of his work, it is hope for peace rather than dread of war that emerges from AZOLIA'S transcendently gorgeous and mesmerizing music.
