Reliably informed

Flush with feelings of guilt, helplessness and regret, Jenny Lascelles’ Dying 2 Get 2 U is a rousing yet intimate rumination on mortality, dwelling on the fragility of existence and our inability to help those we love from its inevitable endgame.

It’s a stirring preview of what the Newcastle singer-songwriter promises will be a more personal and emotionally complex third album, and this sense of growth extends far beyond the song’s lyrical core. Liberated from the self-imposed limitations of acoustic folk, this new expanded vision laces Lascelles’ looping piano with layered, moulded vocals and cinematic electronic flourishes; subtle steps which nevertheless add significant depth from a raw and exquisite starting base. Marvellous stuff.

Released: 02.04.21
