This is 'Lightnesses II'. A companion piece to 'Lightnesses', which was released earlier in 2017.
This volume is darker in tone than the major keys of the first volume. A sense of a resolution that never quite arrives.
I'd been keeping these aside for a release intended much further in the future, but very recently I found myself needing to revist the space these tracks put me in. It induced a sense of calm and warmth in me that I felt others could benefit from as the days in the northern hemisphere become colder.
Thanks for your support in 2017. Stay tuned for a new full length album at some point next year.
This record has been a longtime in coming, and it does not disappoint. There are so many rich textured that William Doyles production brings to Anna's songs which feel like beguiling tapestries. Drawing lines from Cat Power, Fiona Apple to Anna Calvi and Nadine Shah. It was about 6 years ago I stumbled across her at Green Man, I'm so glad she hasn't given up. jeffreyjohns
