THEY MOVED IN SHADOW ALL TOGETHER
white’s Ethereally layered vocals weave tenderly around finger-picked acoustic melodies and subtle strings on her fifth album - a thematic exploration of trauma and survival.
These songs contend with the impact of trauma on individual and collective identity - the shattered pieces within the psyche left to cope after tragedy, and the dissociative co-habitance of belief and disbelief that results. Having broadened her vocal range through classical singing studies, she experimented extensively in the echo chamber at John Vanderslice's Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco – using the room itself as an instrument to explore every capability and constraint.
