We’ve a diverse range of musical and cultural preferences here at NARC. towers. One thing we’re pretty unanimous on though, is Me Lost Me representing one of this region’s very finest gems – a collective conviction which receives further affirmation this month with the arrival of yet another dazzling release.

Putting paid to any question of last year’s astonishing The Good Noise being her artistic ceiling, new EP The Circle Dance paints an optimistic and utopian image; a future planet and society built from the idyllic bedrock of balance and harmony. Conceived during her stint as Artist in Residence at Sage Gateshead, and unveiled on 1st October, the five-track release reflects this delicate equilibrium with her most textural and sonically adventurous music to date. That sonorous, crystalline vocal remains as prominent as ever, but here her electro folk experiments are spun into a captivating drone and jazz-fuelled melange – thanks in no small part to contributions from two local stalwarts in double bassist John Pope and clarinet player Faye MacCalman (both of Archipelago, John Pope Quintet, Ponyland).

The Circle Dance’s release precedes a UK jaunt alongside similarly transcendental electro-drone-folk extraordinaire Nathalie Stern – a stellar double-bill which calls in at Middlesbrough’s Base Camp on Saturday 16th October. For those not yet acquainted with either artist, now is high time to take the plunge.

Me Lost Me releases The Circle Dance EP on 1st October. She performs alongside Nathalie Stern at Base Camp, Middlesbrough on Saturday 16th October. Me Lost Me also performs at Karma Coast in Tynemouth on Saturday 23rd October, Songs From Northern Britain at The Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Saturday 20th November and at Brave Exhibitions at The Cluny on Sunday 21st November
