Exploring concepts of home and landscape.
Félicia Atkinson is releasing a new album, called Image Language, via Shelter Press this June.
Recorded across her home and during a residency at La Becque in Switzerland, Image Language explores questions of the home and landscape.
Image Language “is about getting lost in places imagined and real; it registers, too, the dizzying feeling of moving between such sites. It puts forth a concept of self that is hopelessly entangled with the rest of the world, born of both the ache of distance and the warmth of proximity.”
Across the album’s nine tracks Atkinson combines delicate instrumentals with drone and her own vocals.
It follows the label’s release of claire rousay’s everything is perfect already here — one of our favourite albums from April.
