Relocating to Australia in the sparsely populated city of Castlemaine after her sojourn to Europe for her first few albums, Carla dal Forno now releases a third echoing with a dual sense of isolation and immediacy.

Her familiar austere sound reverberates in acres of space often anchored by a rhythmically intimate synth or guitar reminiscent of the Young Marble Giants or Julee Cruise, evidenced by the title track Come Around, which plays to an empty auditorium audience of one, inviting you to come closer but only if you dare to.

This collection as a whole feels cold and yet if you accept her invitation, immerse yourself in the swathes of gossamer washes, you’ll find yourself “no longer tethered to the world outside”.
