Billie Marten - Feeding Seahorses By Hand (26/04/19)
Artist: Billie Marten
Release Date: 26th April, 2019
Genre: Pop, Singer-Songwriter
Record Label: RCA
Billie Marten follows up her superb debut in effortless style.
Despite the lengthy absence since her last record, a majority of this album was laid down on on a four track tape recorder at producer Ethan Johns's house in just two highly focused weeks of recording.
This organic approach to recording has helped Billie Marten maintain the rough-edge and natural feel of her debut - one of its most praised features - but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t expanded her sound. Where writing of ‘Blues and Yellows’ was deeply atmospheric with skeletal instrumentals, ‘Feeding Seahorses By Hand’ features some more diverse arrangements, incorporating anything from synthesisers to slide guitars and drum machines to choral vocals. Billie masterfully incorporates these new elements with such subtlety and restraint it never seems excessive and never allows them to detract from the raw and subdued nature of the album.
