Brightly Painted One

bella union


Released: 28th Apr 2014


LP +cd

Released: 28th Apr 2014


the bristol born New Zealander Hollie Fullbrook, now expanded to a trio & joined by bassist Cass Basil & drummer Alexander Freer, has signed to Bella Union & it's the perfect home for the group's beautiful, sweet, expansive dream-pop-folk-blues.

Lyrically ambiguous & poignant, the songs roughly follow in the traditions of folk & blues that Fullbrook has drawn on in the past, engaging moods both hopeful & world-weary, building on her talent for storytelling & her ear for the sweetest tunes around. there's also an expanded chamber pop palette of muted embellishments on display - horns, strings, keyboards - to add a more adventurous spectrum of tone & atmosphere. for fans of emilianna torrini's 'fisherman's woman', laura marling, beach house or agnes obel.
