Prepare to be blown away by Her Harbour's emotional vocal in ‘“Chime and Knell”, listen as her evocative tones glide over a soft backdrop of shimmering keys and warm vibraphone courtesy of Dave Draves and Olivier Fairfield.
Lifted from her upcoming "Go Gently Into The Night" album she wrote the song along with the rest of the project at a time where the singer felt followed by death and believed she needed to reconcile with it to accept it as a character of growing importance in her life.
“Chime and Knell” is about the juxtaposition of life and death in the spring. I began writing it in the last stretches of the winter when the snow was first melting, and the dormant land was beginning to thaw. In a season that had always seemed abundant with life, I felt haunted by death; I saw it in the landscape and everything that surrounded me. I ultimately found peace in understanding the importance of loss to life renewing itself and hoped to convey that sentiment with “Chime and Knell”.
Throughout her new album Her Harbour's trembling voice, as well as her understanding of space and drama help, to create eerie haunting sound.
"Go Gently Into The Night" will be released on February 3rd via E-Tron Records. For now, give "Chime and Knell’ a spin.
