Clara Hill is drawn to the darker, more sorrowful sides of music which can express more complex emotions. In her new album, after a four year break from recording, she returns to her childhood inspirations to combine them with the musical know- ledge she has since accumulated. What has emerged is bewitching, magical and – at times – hallucinatory; a pleasantly disorien- tating blend of Folk/Psychedelic Folk, experimental electronica and rock/ indie, at times both familiar and otherworldly, earthy and ethereal. As intoxicated by carefully structured songcraft as by abstract soundscapes, it finds Clara Hill retracing her steps while moving bravely forward, determined to challenge herself as much as her audience.
Contributors to the new album include Hanno Leichtmann, aus, Thomas Bücker, YoggyOne, Schneider TM, Kalle Kalima and Simon Whetham.
