Fiona Brice Releases New Single “Nocturnal” Via Bella Union
“I wanted to make a record that was meditative, compassionate, calm and reflective, as a reaction to the increasingly noisy, opinionated, aggressive and polemic tone of our daily environment,” says Brice. The British multi-instrumentalist, orchestral arranger and composer has drawn on her abundant talents to forge an exceptional record that fulfills the brief. Brice’s second solo album for Bella Union, And You Know I Care, is a deep listening experience that raises the post-classical bar, eschewing the genre’s default melancholia for wider and richer dimensions of uplifting and exultant bliss.

OUT NOW: Sara Fjeldvær – Best Love EP (FFO Susanne Sundfør, Ane Brun)
“Being surrounded by the ocean and beautiful nature must’ve done something to me and my never-ending creativity,” says Sara, looking back on that time. What followed next was moving to Trondheim as a sixteen-year-old to continue her music studies, and she discovered the classics: Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan and The Who were among the artists she fell in love with as she found herself in the world of 70s blues and rock. Alongside her classical singing tuition, these artists led Sara to develop her singing voice – and what a voice it is. A unique, expressive and powerful voice, to see Sara Fjeldvær sing live is to see someone in complete control of a mighty instrument.

TALOS Shares New Single, ‘KITES’
Talos on “KITES”: “‘KITES’ is a flare of optimism, one that burrows its way into the future, looking outward. The idea of space – space to move on, to find something different – is embodied in the structure of the song: towards the end it morphs and melts into a flowering orchestral space, meant to paint the picture of something exploding into life or metamorphosing into change. I was lucky enough to be able to carve this idea out while recording in Eaux Claire with Brian Joseph and Sean Carey, who helped bring my ideas to life.”
