Jane Weaver (opens in new tab) has released a video for the track Bright Curse – the first taste of material from her new Fenella project.
Weaver and her bandmates Peter Philipson and Raz Ullah will release the Fehérlófia album on November 1 – a reimagined soundtrack to Marcell Jankovics’ cult 1981 animation of the same name.
A statement on the album reads: “Weaver’s richly emotional and psychedelic music offers a perfect contemporary dialogue with Jankovics’ astonishing visual aesthetic.
“A mixture of ambient textures, menacing drones and spine-tingling vocals combine to create a lavish soundscape saturated with hypnotic moods and cinematic atmosphere.”
The initial sessions for the record were held in a cottage in near Applecross in north-west Scotland, with the album completed at Eve Studios close to Manchester – the same location Weaver used to construct The Silver Globe, Modern Kosmology (opens in new tab) and Loops In The Secret Society (opens in new tab).
In addition, Fenella have announced a handful of UK tour dates which will take place in October and December. Find further details below.
