Brigid Mae Power paints expansive songs that are effortless, hypnotic and folk-oriented like Judee Sill, Bill Callahan and Sharon Van Etten. The third album from the celebrated singer/songwriter, Head Above The Water is a coming of age opus featuring a ground-breaking amalgamation of traditional folk and country - an engaging blend of strings, bouzouki, piano and Powers distinctive vocal make this an achingly beautiful body of work.
Recorded in analogue studio The Green Door in Glasgow with Alasdair Roberts co-producing alongside Brigid and Peter Broderick. Its a continuing tale of everyday survival; more diverse, different, a bigger canvas, with broader brushstrokes
Country and traditional folk rub shoulders, making for a juxtaposition of threads, with added instrumentation from five musicians lured into the studio to provide larger dynamics.
Power meditates on the dichotomy thats always existed in her work, melding atmospheric bliss and stark desperation. Pitchfork
Power invokes the elements, either in contrast to internal weather or in sympathy with it. The Guardian.
Haunting and haunted (The Line Of Best Fit), Head Above The Water continues in that vein becoming more ethereal, more personal and even more alluring.
After two lauded albums for Tompkins Square, Brigid Mae Power releases her new album on 5th June via Fire Records.
