MAJOR NEW ALBUM RELEASE FROM THE ASTOUNDING STRETTY BOY !!!!!!
STORM Album Released on HolySmokes Records
She's here! Mairi Campbell latest offering, STORM, has arrived.
Storm is the latest in a series of works with long-time collaborator Dave Gray, now seeing Campbell realising the voice and music of Storm - a ten-metre-tall goddess of the sea who walks the streets of cities across Scotland with grave warning of looming climate disaster.
The environmentally focussed Vision Mechanics puppet has provided a perfect monolithic muse for Mairi’s music, with it’s launch at Celtic Connections 2020 attracting thousands. An intensely atmospheric Celtic fusion soundscape, Storm distils Scottish traditional disciplines and Campbell’s masterful viola with Gray’s experimental industrial and electronic adventurism. Delivered with Campbell’s otherworldly vocal, the record reflects the stormy waves of transition humanity finds itself in.
"Bare, bleak maritime laments contrast with Middle Eastern mantras, distorted guitar rubs up against taut viola, a woozy pulse underscores soulful strings, and a ululating vocal resonates over the distant lap of waves in this immersive sonic concoction." **** The Scotsman
"The cacophony of violas, driving drum parts and Campbell's ethereal vocals instantly form a sound that is neither here nor there, a totally new perspective on the genre." Scottish Alternative Music Awards
"Truly chilling and beautiful" Bella Caledonia
"My Word! Is it different" Iain Anderson Show, BBC Radio Scotland
"Fabulous!" Genevieve Tudor, BBC Radio Shropshire

Check out 'Unfolded' the amazing new release from Holly Tomás...........
"Lusher than lush, Holly Tomás’ silk bedroom vocals are something else! “Unfolded” is one-of-a-kind track melding trip-hop, downtempo sound with ever-so-slight classical elements, and smooth drums. It overflows sexiness. If you enjoy Rhye’s intimate music, you will appreciate this one though “Unfolded” sounds unique in more than one way."
Hristina - Stereofox Aug 2020
"I feel a sigh coming on. Holly Tomás has a mastery – or is it mistressy? – of the ethereal that turns her songs into weapons of mass hypnotism designed to capture the hearts of those of us cursed with romanticism and misty morning melancholy."
