Hannah Moule & the band are continuing to challenge expectations with this extraordinary project.
In place of a fifth album, Xenolalia is 55 pieces of music; a set of songs about communication told in five ways for five ensembles: Strings, Horns, A Cappella, Electronica & Electric. An experiment in composition, collaboration and production.
Here, as ever, they bring their independent spirit & experimental tendencies to the table: shades of Hildur Guðnadóttir, Scott Walker and Johnny Greenwood alongside the virtuosic exuberance of ensembles like the Danish String Quartet & Väsen.
From long form moods that echo the drama of Shostakovich and the psychedelic landscapes of Ravel to the familiar and comforting patterns of UK and irish roots music.
Players from The Strings Ensemble have been called to arrange and play on stage and in the studio with Nick Cave, Bonobo, Anchorsong, Alabaster de Plume, Floating points, Seasick Steve, The Levellers, Unthanks, Ayanna Witter-Johnson, Stopgap Dance and Arthur Brown.
"Lockdown album is an overused term but some gems are emerging. A torrent of creativity”
"Radical. A charismatic and revolutionary new approach to songwriting"
Louder Than War
"Tireless Live grafters and entertainers, different, daring and full of Kate Bush-like enchantment”
