Glasgow avant folk trio in a kaleidoscopic mix of vintage oscillators, Moog synth, strings and buzzing harmonium with the rich and expansive vocals of Hanna Tuulikki.

The Siren's Wave

Nalle: The Siren's Wave (Locust)
Label: Locust    
Released in: USA    

"Imagine for a moment the Wicker Man manned by the late Teiji Ito - resident avant composer for Harry Smith & Maya Derren - with psych folk giants Comus sitting in for good measure and you've got some idea of what Glasgow avant folk trio Nalle have put together on their mesmerizing sophomore effort The Sirens Wave. Centred around Hanna Tuulikki's rich and expansive vocals, with a heady, kaleidoscopic mix of vintage whirling oscillators, Moog synth and buzzing harmonium, alongside the intrepid string explorations of Chris Hladowski and Aby Vulliamy, these six pieces continue the long trek through other worlds of sound to form a dense, cohesive suite that meshes everything from Japanese Gagaku, European plainsong, Near Eastern modal drones and more. With Siren's Wave, Nalle have procured a special place where folk conventions are curiously uprooted & seamlessly meshed with other worldly avant tendencies. Features members of The Family Elan, Scatter & the One Ensemble of Daniel Padden."-Locust Music
