Listen Up! No. 73: Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo - Little Deaths

BAFTA Award-winning Australian songwriter Emily Barker sings wistful, undulating songs with a endearingly breathy fragility. It's as if she's staring out of a window at rolling hills, her gentle ruminations and lightly strummed guitar later commited to a tape of Red Clay Halo's more than capable accompaniment. At once melancholy and uplifting, minor in key but major in depth, this kicks the crap out of most of the unseemly dribble of contemporary folk seeping out of London. Her record, Almanac, funded with help from Pledge Music, comes out in February. In the meantime, enjoy her last single, the beautiful 'Little Deaths'.
