Violinist, producer and songwriter Alex Stolze has re-energised his unique blend of electronica, alternative pop and modern classical in new album Kinship Stories. Infectious beats and catchy hooks contrast with moments of modern classical minimalism, bringing his compositions - and their underlying political message - gloriously into the light.
Coming from a poetic folk song tradition, Ben's work draws also from electronica and classical music to create a space in which highly personal and deeply political stories can be told. Ethereal string sections rise and fade, complex electronic beats skitter, dreamlike piano chords drift into view: unique textural tapestries surrounding penetrating poetic lyrics.
Bec Garthwaite (Hands of the Heron) pours an innately detailed craftsmanship into her songwriting. Her fingerpicked guitar strings construct a cat’s cradle in which her gentle, defiant voice can unfold itself, syllable by syllable, note by deliberate note.
