Fantastic new review of 'Starlings & Crows' at Italy's music site Ondarock

'In truth I find it hard to call Chloë March's work undervalued, because in this case we are faced with a real neglect on the part of critics and audiences... March's evanescent and refined chamber-pop would not go unnoticed if it were published in the name of more famous artists (for example, Kate Bush or David Sylvian)... The chamber-folk and dream-pop creations are kissed by an unusual beauty...'

'To a Place', 'All Things Good' and the first movement of Chloë's Dance/Theatre score 'Politik' have all aired on these beautiful 'Nightfly' shows out of Copenhagen on Danish National Radio DR/P2 with renowned DJ Katrine Ring.
 
A brilliantly eclectic late-night show mixing genres to hypnotic and intriguing effect ~ 'To a Place' was aired between Fauré and Tchaikovsky in a playlist that included Johann Johannsson, Ben Harper and Stravinsky. 'All Things Good' is alongside Mahler, Barber, Mikkel Ploug, Tindersticks and 'Politik' between Chopin and Mozart.  Highly recommended listening!

Hidden Shoal and Powderkeg Records are delighted to announce the release of 'Starlings & Crows' the stunning new album by English ambient-pop artist Chloë March

Out on Hidden Shoal and Powderkeg Records 23/10/2020

For her fifth album, March drew inspiration from her early childhood in the Warwickshire countryside, nineteenth-century nature poet John Clare, and Lewis Carroll’s fantastical Alice Through the Looking Glass. Throughout the album there’s a palpable sense of wonder at the natural world, shot through with a deep concern for nature’s vulnerability. 'Starlings & Crows' resonates with notions of home on a macro and micro level. 

 

First single 'To A Place' is an elegant waltz built around swooning strings and piano. 'Landing 1969' sounds as astral as its subject matter would suggest, pulsing at the same tempo as Buzz Aldrin’s heart-rate as Apollo 11 left earth. 'Remember That Sky' is achingly emotive, showcasing March’s innate talent for creating an atmosphere of intimacy without compromising compositional depth. Despite running to a succinct 38 minutes, 'Starlings & Crows' is lush and expansive, while distilled to its crystalline essence.

'All Things Good', the third single to be taken from 'Starlings & Crows' is a delicate and evocative ballad, led by a vulnerable yet strongly flowing melodic vocal over gently propulsive piano.

'Remember That Sky', the second single released from 'Starlings & Crows' is shimmering and smoky, with a dark, velvety vocal tracing a melodic line over drifting and evocative lush synths. Achingly emotive, it showcases March’s innate talent for creating an atmosphere of intimacy without compromising compositional depth. Free Download at Bandcamp

'To A Place', the first single from 'Starlings & Crows' is an elegant waltz built around swooning strings and piano. A bittersweet song of missing a loved one, of falling into a place of memory and imagination. Featuring subtle broken trumpets and beautiful descending vocal lines it's a song of beauty, disquiet and longing.

“One of those one-in-a-million voices

Luminous, sensual, seductive...

her voice is the key that unlocks an intimate soundworld...

Ravishing”
