Reliably informed

You don’t always need words to tell a story. Ambient music project Kieldfal has expertly captured the sounds and soul of Northumberland in a new release, Forward, To The Lights.

The EP takes the listener on a journey from scenic countryside to the gritty industrialisation of the region. The birdsong and pleasant timbre of opener Barrowburn transport you to breezy summer walks around Wall Country. It segues seamlessly through Forward, To The Lights Parts 1 & 2, which build incrementally towards that richer, diversified sound as we get closer to bustling streets and city lights.

Getting the entire history of the North East into a three-track record is no small feat, and anyone with an iota of knowledge about Northumberland should feel strangely comforted by this auditory representation.
