GATRILL, EMMA - COCOON (LP)


"Emma Gatrill is a multi-instrumentalist based in Brighton, UK. Her debut, 2012's Chapter I, was a poignant collection of songs based around her then-latest acquisition - the harp. Subtly accompanied by various members of Brighton's Willkommen Collective, her intricate harp playing coupled with a unique vocal fragility drew comparisons to Björk and Joni Mitchell. Five years and hundreds of live shows with dozens of different bands later, her larger-scale live ambitions fed back into the writing and recording process for Gatrill's forthcoming second album, Cocoon. The album showcases a huge leap forward in scope and imagination. The harp, tender vocal and unique take on classic songwriting are still at the core of Gatrill's sound, but the arrangements draw from a much wider and often darker sonic palette - from orchestral strings to monosynths, drum machines to tap shoes and Casio keyboards to vibraphones. Gatrill's circle of influences has widened too - on Cocoon Emma draws from the joyful experimentation of Juana Molina and the intelligent pop and texturally rich arrangements of Julia Holter and My Brightest Diamond."
