''A deeply atmospheric cut, echoes the soft darkness of Daughter.” - DIY
Following spellbinding performances at Cambridge Folk Festival and Secret Garden Party last summer Kerry Devine announces the release of her debut album ''Away From Mountains'' on 11 May via Trapped Animal.
''Away From Mountains'' is profoundly inspired by the Fenland landscape and the stillness and history that inhabit the ancient and wild fens in the East of England. As Devine expands: ''When you’re there and you're still you can hear so many different sounds, so many different layers, so I wanted to create something that sounded like that, that had the depth and the richness but also very sparse. This place comforts me, I wanted to create a kind of sound womb that the listener could come into and be comforted too.''
She has garnered early support from Amazing Radio (''An amazing talent far beyond her years. A haunting melodic sound''), BBC Radio Cambridge and BBC Radio 2, with Mark Radcliffe including Devine's music in his Folk Playlist 2017.
