Listen next: Colleen traces her influences from Can to Wu-Tang Clan in our new vinyl-only mix

Her second release on the label following 2015’s superb Captain Of None – one of our top 3 albums of the yearA flame my love, a frequency hears Colleen set aside her viola da gamba in favour of a wholly electronic set-up built around Moog pedals and Critter and Guitari synthesizers.

Drawing comparisons with Arthur Russell for her ability to seamlessly navigate the acoustic, the electronic, and the avant-garde, Colleen has heralded the album with new track ‘Separating’.

A rumination of the nature of life and death, in part a reaction to her proximity to the 2015 Paris attacks, you can listen to it above.
