Hayden Thorpe on Thursday 26th March 2020
Born and raised in the South Lakes Hayden found success with his band Wild Beasts before embarking on a solo career with his debut album Diviner. A deeply emotional album: lyrically generous in its candid tone and self- awareness, the melodies resonant with sense memory and a fitting soundtrack to the first year of Aerial.
Weaving piano, ambient guitar drifts, rainbow chords, propulsive bass lines and cosmic synth washes are some of the brush strokes while the songs often twist and turn, confounding sonic expectations. It feels like a startling departure from Thorpe’s previous work and also unlike anything else being made at the moment. Throughout the record, his voice is a beacon, sounding even more powerfully unfettered than before, as if he’d found a new inner voice, a new way to use his instrument.
