“There were moments of The Clearing when my memories drifted toward Philip Glass and Michael Nyman, spiritual jazz and soundtrack music, Radiohead’s “Amnesiac,” Ryuichi Sakamoto’s collaborations with Fennesz and Alva Noto. The Clearing is a study in contrast—majestic and radiant one moment, ominous and weary the next. There’s a feeling of presence and possibility throughout, as Grimes’s sonorous piano seems to dissolve into something sublime and vaporous, a reminder that there are always greater forces at play.” – Hua Hsu for The New Yorker
Rachel released the second single from her upcoming record, The Clearing (May 26, Temporary Residence). “The Air in Time” features Scott Moore on violin and sound art by LOSCIL. The “Airs” weave the larger pieces of the album together and reflect the natural elements of air and sky. Click here to listen to “The Air in Time”.
