 "Entrancing and unsettling. A marvellous, original work" ✭✭✭✭ Observer

 

Seed Stitch is the new single from BBC Folk Award-winner Emily Portman, released alongside a new video by a fellow Liverpool-based animator Laura Sparks.

    Seed Stitch showcases two stand-out songs from Coracle that subtly spin together folk motifs with personal reflections on motherhood and bereavement. Emily describes the title track as ‘a knitting pattern for DNA’; her beguiling voice rings out over a soundscape of metronomic fiddles, with pulsing wurlitzer, electric guitar, glitch-laden electronics and percussion. Haunting, yet silver-lined Seed Stitch shows Emily’s finely crafted songwriting at its most poignant. The single also features ‘Nightjar’, a beautifully atmospheric song featuring harp, brooding strings and drums, that lyrically captures the last moments of a loved one’s life. Joining the acclaimed Emily Portman Trio on Seed Stitch are guests Sam Sweeney on strings (Bellowhead), M G Boulter on guitars (Lucky Strikes) and Classical percussionist Toby Kearney (BBC Young Musician of the Year 2006).

Released November 13th 2015.
