a wide-eyed rendering of modern folk song where the acoustic & the electronic rub alongside, influenced as much by artists like PJ Harvey & Portishead as by the "pure" sounds of Nico & Nick Drake.

Born in South Africa, the daughter of a Classics teacher & a carburettor repairman, Kristin spent her early years travelling through both arid & tropical lands as her family looked for work. Kristin moved to England aged 13 & it was around this time that she picked up her first nylon string guitar & began writing songs. She caught the attention of the local folk scene while studying Fine Art in Brighton & after a handful of early performances was eagerly adopted by The Willkommen Collective. Produced by Christian Hardy of The Leisure Society.
