Isobel Waller-Bridge has shared plans for her new ‘VIII’ EP.
The multi award-winning composer has just signed to Mercury KX, one of the most powerful imprints in modern classical music. Lauded for her soundtrack work, Isobel Waller-Bridge returns to something more personal on the incoming project.
Available to pre-order now, ‘VIII’ EP is an attempt to find “catharsis”, and finds the composer working with a full string ensemble.
Isobel Waller-Bridge comments…
“I found there to be a profound catharsis in writing these pieces. They have in one form or another lived in me for decades and are a private (albeit public) reflection of my style, my development, and my love of writing. The process and the material has reconnected me with parts of my identity, and made me even more curious about music than I was before. I wrote this music to let my inside out. They are imperfect, and perhaps they are incomplete. But they are honest.”
New track ‘Daylight’ has been ushered online, and its gentle sonic tapestries carry a hushed sense of emotion. Draped in melody, it opens a new arena for her work – tune in now.
