FISHERMAN’S WOMAN (2017 reissue)
Originally released in 2005 and long out-of-print, Rough Trade Records are proud to announce the re-release of Emiliana Torrini’s first album for the label.
“Home alone and happy / Nothing brings me down" So opens Emiliana Torrini’s second album and first for Rough Trade, a soft-yet-searing collection of twelve intimate and atmospheric songs that will whisper their way into your bloodstream.
entirely devoid of the self-conscious quirkiness of so many of her contemporaries, she's closer in spirit to the likes of sandy denny and nick drake. her hushed, fragile vocal style is intimate and entrancing without ever sounding affected or precious. subtle support from some empathetic musicians keeps the focus squarely on torrini's ethereal voice and on the hypnotic acoustic-guitar patterns around which most of the tunes revolve. torrini's lyrics are alternately confessional/emotional and allusive/cryptic, but the honesty of her delivery makes every song come across with an equally visceral impact.
