her sophomore fully embraces a DARKER SONIC SHIFT, blending her idiosyncratic strings and harp combo with haunting, ethereal synths and drum machines, resulting in a gripping, intimately moody record.

Subtly accompanied by various members of Brighton’s Willkommen Collective, her intricate harp-playing coupled with a unique vocal fragility draw comparisons to, Joanna newsom, Björk and Joni Mitchell. The harp, tender vocal and unique take on classic songwriting are still at the core of Gatrill’s sound, but the arrangements draw from a much wider, and often darker, sonic palette – from orchestral strings to monosynths, drum machines to tap shoes and Casio keyboards to vibraphones. Gatrill’s circle of influences has widened too – on Cocoon Emma draws from the joyful experimentation of Juana Molina and the intelligent pop and texturally rich arrangements of Julia Holter.
