The second single to be taken from the forthcoming album 'Starlings & Crows', 'Remember That Sky' 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.

'To a Place', the first single taken from 'Starlings & Crows', is an elegant waltz built around swooning strings and piano. A bittersweet ballad full of imagery and emotion, a 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.

"I felt overwhelmed by the imagery, such was its power. Like finding a fascinating painting in an art gallery, you just cannot tear yourself away. Multi-faceted, layered, textured and dextrous. Chloë March reminds me a lot of Sarah Barker from Zero 7 fame." Chris Ingram Fresh On The Net

"The ever-consistent Chloë March returned and stormed into the fresh faves with the haunting melancholy of To a Place. Like all her best songs, it has an otherworldly quality with swirling synths and Chloë’s fantastic alto voice delivering a melody that cuts my emotions to ribbons." Trust The Doc

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.
