Delicate, precise and full of astute observation, the latest release by Rachael Dadd is built on a very ancient English tradition of folk politick bang up to date in our post-truth modern age. Beneath lush folk pop lies a message for inclusivity, tolerance and fairness illustrated deftly by a questioning line “In our hearts can we always be free” from the first single Cut My Roots, which speaks of her own experience with this country’s immigration policy and the undesired rise of white supremacy.

The album is about the flow of life uprooted, our fears and adventurous connections we make across borders, replete with appearances from Jim Barr (Portishead), Rob Pemberton (Low Chimes) and co-production by Marcus Hamblett (Laura Marling).
