for her 4th solo album Rhodes draws on her singer-songwriter roots, embroidering them with a rich palette of stark piano, vocal layering, transcendent harp and strings all wrapped up within a heady smattering of vintage reverbs.

It was all recorded in friend and co-producer Simon Byrt’s studio in rolling Wiltshire countryside, crammed full of an analogue nerd’s paradise of vintage desks (one of which was used in the Beach Boys “Smile Sessions”), microphones and tape machines supplemented by Byrt’s own collection of reverb boxes. Acoustic guitar was played by Rhodes, additional guitar, bass, piano and synths by Byrt, abstract pedal steel by Ian Kellet, drums by Nikolaj Bjerre, string arrangements by Danny Keane and harp by Tom Moth. “a quietly elegant, simply persuasive record” – 7/10 uncut
